Fluid & Electrical Basic Design

Engineer the integrated 2D and 3D basic design of fluid and electrical systems

When designing a ship or a platform, it is essential to be able to define fluid and electrical systems in adherence with requirements, standards and regulations while ensuring design integrity and alleviating potential contentions with other disciplines at a very early stage of the design process. 

Designed For Sea enables fluid and electrical systems engineers to define, simulate, analyze, and validate the basic design of integrated fluid and electrical systems for an entire ship or offshore platform.

With Designed For Sea, fluid and electrical engineers can easily define and modify specification-driven 2D schematic diagrams for the different systems needed. These are then used to drive the equipment arrangement and 3D system layout. Catalogs, standards, embedded design rules, and material and design specifications provide the ability to dynamically validate the design of all the different components (piping, HVAC, electrical systems) with respect to requirements, regulations, and technical budgets at an early stage. In addition, fluid and electrical engineers can efficiently manage space to alleviate conflicts with other engineering disciplines during downstream processes, avoiding costly reworks and delays.

Designed For Sea provides advanced integrated cross-discipline analysis and simulation to globally assess the validity of any given design alternative. Design intent is managed seamlessly during 2D and 3D fluid and electrical basic design, enabling faster generation of the detail design.

Key Highlights and Benefits

  • Develop Piping & Instrumentation Diagrams (P&IDs), and electrical diagrams
  • Define 3D arrangement and system layout early in the design process to avoid potential conflicts with other engineering disciplines
  • Simulate, analyze, and validate fluid and electrical systems
  • Create and synchronize detail design from fluid and electrical basic design
