RESEARCH AND INNOVATION
Technomar has been participating in several R&D projects related to O&G exploration and renewable energies. Among the projects we can mention: development of real-time simulator, new concepts of FPSOs, CCS – Carbon Capture and Storage in salt caverns, new floating structures for offshore wind turbines and the development of digital twins. Technomar is committed to innovation developing several partnerships with national and International Research institutes.
Development of Engineering Tools
Development of coupled fast time simulators considering, environmental conditions, mooring system (lines and fenders), dynamic positioning system and other phenomena of hydrodynamic interaction.
- TMS is a dynamic simulation program of floating systems used to design of mooring system, downtime analysis.
- Technomar DP Simulator - developed with PIPE/FAPESP subvention program.
Innovation in O&G exploration
Application of state of art concepts for deep water oil and gas exploration. Recent technological advances have enabled ever more efficient and sustainable exploration.
- CCS project: study of the construction of salt caverns in deep waters by saline dissolution, storage and separation of CO2 and other gases at high pressure.
- FPSO next-generation JIP - Development of next-generation FPSO for Brazilian fields in ultra-deep waters. The project covers several areas such as hull, risers and processing plants.
Development of solutions for floating wind turbines focusing on new concepts of hulls and mooring systems. Examples include:
- Floating Wind Turbines (FWT) for deep water
- Monocolumn for power generation through wave converters
It combines numerical models with sensors data on a simulation platform to show the present status and predict future status of an asset. It can, for example, update instantaneously the fatigue life consumed, allowing you to plan equipment maintenance.
Partnerships in R & D
Technomar has R&D partnership with national and international institutions such as University of São Paulo – USP (TPN, LMO and RCGI Labs), NTNU - Norway (Shiplab) and University of Tokyo (Ocean Space Planning Laboratory).
