Construction industry software developer Bentley Systems has announced that it has acquired Moses software from Ultramarine. According to Bentley, Moses is the leading analysis and simulation software for complex projects involving the transportation and installation of offshore structures, including the launch of jackets and floatover of topsides.
Bentley has said that the acquisition of Moses complements its buyout of Sacs software for the structural design of fixed offshore structures earlier this year and will strengthen its position in the offshore energy industry.
“Our next step is to leverage the Bentley technology platform to enhance Moses’ modelling and graphical visualisation capabilities, as well as its ease of use,” said Bentley vice president, offshore, Phil Christensen. “This will improve the user experience and extend the application of Moses for more interactive design decisions. In addition, full integration between Sacs and Moses will allow a cohesive model to be used for all structural and naval architectural analyses.”
