Bentley’s MOSES for Offshore Structures Now Available With All the Benefits of SELECT

Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for sustaining infrastructure, today announced the availability of its MOSES software for hydrostatic and hydrodynamic analysis of offshore platforms and vessels under the Bentley SELECT licensing program. MOSES is the global leader in the analysis and simulation of complex offshore structure transport and installation projects. Moreover, its functionality covering stability, motions, and mooring studies of floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) units and floating platforms has made it the mainstay for engineering teams to reliably meet stringent offshore code requirements, reduce project risks, and increase safety. Now, through a SELECT subscription, MOSES users can gain access to additional benefits, including:

  • anytime software upgrades, at no additional cost, via SELECTserver
  • 24/7/365 support
  • SELECT Open Access
  • Portfolio Balancing
  • license pooling within a given country
  • license usage reporting

Bentley’s SELECT Open Access is a no-cost commercial innovation providing any electing subscriber with unrestricted portfolio-wide access to a “playlist” of applications comprising the recommended mix of software for their respective disciplines on a given project. Subscribers then benefit from convenient and cost-effective Quarterly Term Licensing for incremental applications or usage, along with on-demand and live training in virtual classrooms for such new application users through Bentley LEARN.

Bentley SELECT’s unique Portfolio Balancing allows a once-per-year exchange of underutilized licenses for new software titles of equal value based on their respective current pricing. This provides subscribers with unmatched flexibility to adapt their software portfolios each year as their software needs change.

Phil Christensen, Bentley vice president, offshore, said, “MOSES has long been the choice of offshore engineers worldwide for projects involving the design, transportation, and installation of offshore structures, including jackets, topsides, FPSOs, spars, TLPs, semi-submersibles, wind turbines, and other platforms. This leadership position was achieved as a result of the software’s many innovative features, including its flexible and customizable MOSES Language and the integrated nature of its solver that improves efficiency and reduces the risk of error.”

He continued, “Now, MOSES users can have the added advantages that are available to Bentley SELECT subscribers, including the newly launched SELECT Open Access opt-in program. This advantage helps organizations of any size to maximize the value of their software investments while eliminating purchasing barriers to the most effective software utilization so that all Bentley applications become ‘Software at your Service.’ Moreover, MOSES users can look forward to two new releases of the software – the first of which is coming mid-year that will include a new language editor and new hull and compartment modeling capabilities. A second release later in 2014 will provide further integration with Bentley’s SACS software for the analysis and design of offshore structures.”

Bill Mead, engineering’s lead naval architect for the Subsea Business Unit of Technip North America, said, “Having successfully used MOSES on numerous offshore installation projects since the early 1980s, I am excited by the prospect of the benefits we will gain by Bentley’s commitment to the ongoing development of MOSES. The planned new tools for editing and modeling should be a significant help to our team.”

Bentley continues to be a leader in the provision of engineering software for better-performing, safer, and more resilient offshore structures, addressing key drivers:

  • managing risks via compliance with design codes
  • time to first production
  • globalization of design teams

In addition to MOSES, Bentley’s engineering software for offshore structures includes SACS, for the structural analysis and design of fixed platforms as well as topsides for fixed platforms, floating platforms, and FPSO units; and MAXSURF, for the initial hull design of new vessels, and review of stability for modifications to existing vessels.
