Geospatial, dimensional control and digital twin

Planning, building and optimising projects through the capture, analysis and application of highly accurate geo-referenced data

UTEC Smart Data shown on screens

Specialising in 3D asset management software solutions, geospatial solutions, dimensional control and telecoms services, we capture, process and deliver spatially referenced data across the lifecycle of projects.

Fast, and accurate surveying techniques performed onshore, reduce the time and costs associated with multiple visits to offshore sites, resulting in lower risk and significant health and safety improvements with fewer mobilisations. Acteon’s proprietary 4D virtual asset management solution, iSite, allows customers to remotely manage any assets from their desktop, driving down the cost of offshore planning and communication. Remote access and assessments of marine assets reduce personnel on board (POB) without compromising safety and we have reported that 89% of iSite users see a reduction in offshore man days. 

Automated data processing and calculations are used to remove any incidences of human error when handling or manipulating data, whilst speeding up the overall time to process the data resulting in time and cost savings; in some cases, this can now take 15 mins as opposed to days of human analysis. 

Solving your most pressing challenges

Acteon helps customers to reduce the time from data collection to results.

We need our project teams and technical experts to collaborate across different disciplines to optimise the project management and delivery

Acteon solution 

Acteon provides a platform for better decision-making allowing customers and contractors to have access to the data they need to plan, evaluate and problem solve safety, environmental and risk scenarios. 

Proof points 

  • We develop smarter workflows creating task hierarchies that improve efficiency and enable project managers to see the status or share information on a project in one place. 
  • We use our domain knowledge to design systems that address the specific needs of the project and/or the requirements of the environment. 
  • We utilise multi-disciplinary teams, across multiple locations, to remotely collaborate and contribute to a project through a single interface. 
  • Seamless sharing of information and documentation with a secure web link eliminates the need to download new software or adapt or integrate with an IT tech stack. 

How can we obtain highly accurate survey results to support our fabrication/calibration requirements?

Acteon solution 

Acteon generates quantifiable survey information using an approach focused on due diligence, project review and assessment and active discussions with the customer to ensure we have a full understanding of the scope of works and the work environment, and that the survey requirement is undertaken efficiently and to plan, avoiding the need for any revisits. 

Proof points 

  • We use latest technology including GPS, total stations, laser scanners and mobile solutions to capture data faster, minimise travel costs, minimise environmental impact and increase operational safety. 
  • Have a strong track record in calibration and offset surveys with 30 projects completed within the last three years: 11 vessel calibrations and 19 surveys of stingers, piles, trees and fast frames. 
  • We support equipment replacements or new fabrications on brownfield projects working to the required tolerances, up to sub-millimetre. 

We want to engage with a survey solutions company who can provide all aspects of the required work scope

Acteon solution 

Acteon provides a single source survey contract which will consider the most efficient way of undertaking the task leveraging the right sensor/equipment to meet the specification. 

Proof points 

  • We offer an array of survey technology solutions including ground (laser, GPS, total station, mobile mapping unit), water (echo sounder, Blueview, UAV), and air-based sensors (drones with LIDAR and Camera payloads) to support all survey needs under a single contract. 
  • We manage projects and logistics across the globe to provide a single point of contact for logistics. 
  • We have local knowledge of equipment transfer or hiring in a specific country, medical/safety requirements for operation in-country and utilise local agents where required. 
  • Our latest sensors and processing software streamlines the end-to-end process of digital data generation and intuitive processing techniques are utilised to automate the process.

How can we consolidate survey data from different sources and suppliers into one solution?

Acteon solution 

Using our in-house digital twin solution, iSite, Acteon can consolidate survey data, transforming it into a visual asset management solution which can be customised and accessed by all stakeholders via cloud servers. 

Proof points 

  • The consolidation of existing survey information leverages current datasets without the need for costly re-acquisition exercises. 
  • Consolidation of key datasets into an intuitive visual interface provides a holistic view of the worksite, driving informed decisions. 
  • 52% of iSite users surveyed recorded significant cost savings, due to reduced offshore working. 48% stated they utilise the iSite daily for more effective communication and project planning. 
  • Our digital twin solutions have been active in the market for over 10 years, supporting our customer base.

We want to use a reputable survey company with a good track record in safety

Acteon solution 

Acteon operates with internationally recognised standards to meet the needs of the various markets that we work in, and our customers required compliance standards. 

Proof points 

  • We are accredited to the following standards: ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, ISO 45001:2018, RISQS, UVDB. 
  • We actively monitor training and staff competency to ensure the right skilled individuals are assigned to our projects. 
  • Over the past three years we have had zero lost time injuries, zero environmental incidents and zero dangerous occurrences which is a testament to our robust policies and procedures applied across our geospatial, dimensional control and digital twin operations. 
  • When deciding which technology to use, safety is our top priority; for example, we can avoid working from height by using contactless data acquisition methods.
