Umbilical Reel

May 2014
Perth, Western Australia

Global Scanning Solutions was contracted by Subsea7 to provide dimensional control survey measurements and to develop a series of as-built 3D CAD models of a series of umbilical reels to assist in investigation of equipment design and interface issues. In order to achieve the project requirements it was proposed that the umbilical reels be dimensionally surveyed and laser scanned.

The primary objective of the project was to determine deformation in the outer rim of the umbilical reels and to develop 3D CAD models of the centre hub assemblies with the ability and functionality to determine hydraulic drive equipment interfacing.

Key deliverables included;

  • Dimensional survey report
  • 3D CAD as-built model
  • Registered point cloud data
  • Plan and section general arrangement drawings

A team of 2 surveyors were mobilised to this project, with the team completing the dimensional control survey and the 3D laser scanning. Our 3D modelling team were tasked with developing a 3D as-built model and offset general arrangements.
