International project services consultancy, Cambla, has launched an upgraded version of its Schedule Animation Tool (S.A.T) to the renewables market.
This was reported November 2, 2016.
Initially launched to market last year, the technology was a world-first for the oil and gas industry and has been further developed to ensure effective and efficient planning of renewable marine operations. S.A.T provides an accurate visual representation of vessel locations and planned activities, offering project teams full fleet management support and significant cost savings.
The most recent upgrades to the tool significantly improve user experience and include improved comparison view, detailed project infrastructure and the addition of renewable graphics.
Alexander MacLeod, founder of Cambla, said: Ultimately, we aim to ensure that S.A.T offers the best possible user experience for planning renewable marine operations, so we have continued to upgrade the technology to meet our clients’ business requirements. Cost effective, time saving processes are always in demand and S.A.T offers operators an innovative tool for the most efficient project planning.
«The tool is particularly effective for renewables operations, and allows operators to view the fabrication of project infrastructure including the installation of wind turbines and associated subsea construction work. Users can also monitor the delivery requirements for the project to effectively control the management of parts, materials and equipment required for the complete construction of a renewables project».
Cambla has also recruited Lee Birnie, a Computing placement student from Robert Gordon University’s School of Computing Science and Digital Media, to support with the development of the upgrade.
Alexander continued: We recruit graduates every year through the Scottish Government’s ScotGrad scheme, which not only provides us with further support for our projects and product development plans, but also offers valuable hands-on experience for young people looking to kick-start their careers.
«I believe it is particularly important to bring students and graduates into the business. Lee has been an invaluable addition to the team so far and we look forward to supporting his development during his time with the company».
Established in 2013, Cambla offers expert project planning, cost control and probabilistic services to support oil and gas and renewable projects using a pre-built toolkit of processes and reports.
