STRS: Oceaneering Leverages Vortex Studio for Subsea Simulations

Simulation, Training and Assessment for Resilience and Safety.

CM Labs Simulations Inc. announced that Oceaneering Inc., has successfully integrated Vortex Studio into its planning and prototyping workflows for offshore tools, which will reduce the company’s training times and increase mission readiness.

Free to add different difficulty levels to the simulated missions via Vortex Studio, crews are now able to start with basic skill building tasks and then progress to the same types of real-time challenges they will face while working onsite.

This new type of training program is already gaining traction with Oceaneering’s Norwegian office, which is looking to leverage simulation-based training for its globally deployed ROV pilots.

“Based on preliminary data, Oceaneering is expecting hot-stab operations 30 percent faster and an increase in mobilization time of at least 20 percent.”
