UK-based FPSO and marine vessel specialists, Marine Technical Limits (MTL), has developed a new software system to allow its clients to better manage risk-based integrity management.
The Pyxis software system is a dashboard which provides a simple integrity index for each tank or marine structure, allowing clients to assess whether or not their marine assets are meeting best practice, the company explained.
Calum MacLean, MTL projects director said: “Pyxis gives our team the ability to digitally define inspection work plans, which allows tablet-based inspection data recording.
“This means that as an inspection takes place the data is uploaded to the dashboard immediately, allowing our clients to see instant reports – subject to internet connectivity.”
Matt Lewin, technical director, added: “Not only does Pyxis allow our clients to assess their vessels’ integrity but it also allows data-driven decisions, management of integrity risk, reduced costs, reduced reporting time and, with our state-of-the-art visualization software, clients are able to view and assess any anomalies through virtual reality.”
