Responsive engineering services for rapid execution – Case Study


When Repsol needed to add workforce capacity, Atos managed the associated engineering challenge

Operational since the early 1980’s, the Casablanca platform was given an extended operational life when previously uneconomic deposits became feasible thanks to new exploration and extraction techniques. The original rig workforce capacity of 65 needed to be extended to around 100.

This in turn, required another lifeboat station to be added to the platform, able to manage the safe and rapid evacuation of 40 members of the workforce in the event of an emergency.

Repsol commissioned the specialist Atos Engineering Services to design the new lifeboat platform, to appoint the manufacturing company, to supervise installation, and to ensure structural certification from Lloyds Register for insurance and regulatory purposes.

Working in close partnership, Atos, Principia and Repsol completed the installation of the new lifeboat station on time and on budget. The speed was thanks in part to Principia’s software NSO/ISYMOST, which made it possible to explore different approaches in record time.
