3:15 PM Digital Guardian: Health monitoring and lifetime extension of OWF structures

LICengineering and Akselos have developed a reduced based FE-tool for design and monitoring of
offshore structures such as OWF Foundations. The FE tool is gives the ability to model all in One
Model = Digital Twin, including complex joints, with CPU speed approximately 1000 times higher
than conventional FEA, which makes it possible to perform real time analyses from on-line
measured motions.
In combination with a novel Structural Integrity Monitoring system, based on Operational Modal
Analyses developed by LIC, this makes an efficient Guardian tool for structural health monitoring
and providing valuable information for lifetime extension.
The system is tested on a offshore platform in the North Sea operated by a super major, and it will
be demonstrated how the Digital Guardian can provide the operator with health monitoring, to be
used in the daily operation, for lifetime extension or in relation to due diligence etc.
