Access Precise Measurements

Rely on PipelayView's optional scanning laser, which can be mounted with a view of the pipe exit from the lay vessel, to gain precise measurement of the pipe exit angle.

You can see the measurements on a bullseye chart that can then be incorporated into your PipelayView screen using 4D Nav's PEMS software module.

Seamless OrcaFlexTM FEA Integration

PipelayView is easily integrated with Orcina's OrcaflexTM FEA (Finite Element Analysis), giving you access to real-time modeling of pipe catenary, touchdown tensions, and fatigue.
