HELPING PORTS TO PREPARE FOR FUTURE GROWTH WITH DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY
The world’s network of port infrastructure is at an important crossroads. It faces an urgent need to adapt and develop if it wishes to remain competitive and continue to grow.
There has been a call from across the industry for a transformative change, as incremental moves are no longer delivering the scale of efficiencies or improvements expected by shipping companies.
The challenges related to port infrastructure development can be overcome with the adoption of transformative digital technologies.
The smart port of the future will:
- leverage advanced analytics and machine learning to empower decision making with data insights
- have fully automated operations and processes
- use digital twin technology to enable predictive maintenance.
Our technology will help port operators to understand the integrity of port and marine structures, by allowing access to condition-based models of all the facilities throughout their lifetime. This will enable predictive maintenance to optimize maintenance schedules, eliminate unplanned downtime and increase productivity.
The high-fidelity modelling provided by Akselos can be used to represent defects in full 3D detail. As a result, Akselos can provide a condition-based model which can be used to assess structures in their current state, as opposed to an idealised pristine state. We tested Akselos's modeling with defects resulting in significant effect on stresses and forces in structures, which shows that it is vital to model defects in detail in order to perform an accurate structural integrity assessment.

When modeling offshore oil & gas structures, it's imperative to develop structural simulations that account for all sources of uncertainty (wave and wind conditions, cracks, corrosion, etc.). This calls for new, robust and very fast parametric models.

Akselos did a very challenging project for us in the field of combustion chamber acoustics. [...] they exceeded their promises: with Akselos software we achieved an incredible speed-up of our acoustic FEM calculations, and this enabled us to perform computations that we wouldn't even think of before.
