Delivering cost effective solutions to reduce downtime and increase safety

Vibration induced fatigue remains a major operational cost to the energy industry.  

Issues associated with vibration-induced fatigue include remediation costs, associated loss of uptime, redesign and replacement of failed equipment, investigation by regulatory authorities and potential damage to reputation.  

Our team utilises robust engineering solutions during the project development, pre-commissioning and operational phases to eliminate its occurrence, associated problems and potentially catastrophic effects – reducing downtime and increasing safety.

Fatigue threats can be designed before a project goes into procurement and construction to reduce risk of project cost escalation and schedule delays.

During the design phase, our team of experienced engineers, FE and CFD specialists, use our knowledge of field operating conditions, gathered from working globally on both on and offshore energy assets. Working with modelling of dynamic systems, we deliver a robust well-designed asset that considers all fatigue threats ensuring timely commissioning, minimal downtime during early operations and reduced OPEX spend during the life of the asset.  

Our approach to dynamic simulation as well as our capabilities and experience in this area, allows fatigue threats to be quantified beyond what can be achieved using the industry-recognised Energy Institute’s ‘Guidelines for the Avoidance of Vibration Induced Fatigue Failure in Process Pipework and Subsea Systems.’ This approach means our clients get the design right first time - meaning no rework and reliable asset from day one.  


Most pipework and structural vibration concerns first occur during commissioning or early operations.

Site survey, pre and post commissioning, is an important stage in the process to assess vibration issues beyond the design stage. Surveys can identify high-risk locations that can either be modified prior to start-up or reviewed during operations. Our vibration risk assessment methodology utilises the learnings and efficiencies developed over many years of experience, resulting in a cost effective and robust assessment  

Our engineers have significant design and plant experience with procedures and tools in performing vibration risk assessments during commissioning to identify and solve vibration issues before they induce failure. Failure to address vibration risks during operations exposes the asset to major safety, reliability and operational issues. Changes to plant due to ageing, debottlenecking and component replacement can alter the vibration risk profile of an asset.  

We support clients by developing robust vibration management strategies to identify and quantify the changes in risk. We deploy screening assessments, vibration risk assessments, measurement and long-term monitoring systems to ensure continued safe operation, all managed using our propriety online database. This is all done through our proprietary software, XAMIN Vibration (formerly HAWXEYE). 


Where there is a requirement to understand the response of infrastructure to the likes of environment and processes, we can mobilise long-term monitoring equipment that captures data over months and years.

Our bespoke monitoring system (which is ATEX rated for hazardous areas) provides a cost-effective solution which incorporates advance data acquisition hardware and analysis software. Our approach provides autonomous operations, without need for costly on-site support but still provides the full picture of performance. It provides all the data required to make informed decisions on operations and maintenance and improves reliability and advanced analysis where required
