Bentley Systems is making available its MOSES software for hydrostatic and hydrodynamic analysis of offshore platforms and vessels under the Bentley SELECT licensing program. Bentley is a leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for sustaining infrastructure.
MOSES is a proven software for the analysis and simulation of complex offshore structure transport and installation projects. Moreover, the software’s 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. The SELECT subscription will help organisations maximise the value of their software investments.
Bentley’s SELECT licensing program allows MOSES users to gain access to anytime software upgrades at no additional cost via SELECTserver; 24/7/365 support; SELECT Open Access; Portfolio Balancing; license pooling within a given country; and license usage reporting.
Available on a no-cost basis to subscribers, Bentley’s SELECT Open Access provides unrestricted portfolio-wide access to a whole range of applications comprising of the recommended mix of software for their respective disciplines on a given project. Subscribers can take advantage of the convenient and cost-effective Quarterly Term Licensing for incremental applications or usage, along with on-demand and live training in virtual classrooms for these applications through Bentley LEARN.
A major highlight of Bentley SELECT’s Portfolio Balancing feature is the provision for subscribers to exchange underutilised licenses for new software titles of equal value based on their respective current pricing. Available to them once a year, the facility enables subscribers to adapt their software portfolios each year to suit their changing software needs.
Phil Christensen, Bentley vice president - Offshore comments that MOSES is popular among 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.
Now, MOSES users can have the added advantages available to Bentley SELECT subscribers, including the newly launched SELECT Open Access opt-in program, helping organisations of any size to maximise the value of their software investment while eliminating purchasing barriers to the most effective software utilisation so that all Bentley applications are available as a SaaS model.
MOSES users can also expect two new releases of the software incorporating a new language editor and new hull and compartment modelling capabilities in the first release, and further integration with Bentley’s SACS software for the analysis and design of offshore structures, which will be released later in 2014.
