In its area, Westcon 3D is one of the central players in the oil and gas sector, as well as the rest of the maritime field. Westcon 3D collects and visualises survey data in a new and effective manner.
We use 3D laser scanners (and total stations/TSTs) to carry out exact industrial surveys – with accuracy as fine as 1-2mm. This is the most efficient and exact method for collecting survey data. The amassed data has very many areas of use, and with the help of WLP they are extremely visual. We carry out surveys and data collection for all types of offshore and onshore installations in all parts of the world.
WLP (Westcon Laser Portal) is our self-created software that combines measurement data in a new and user-friendly way.
Instead of measuring constructions manually, which is both time-consuming and inaccurate, laser scanning does the job in a fraction of the time, and more precisely. This allows us to be more flexible with regard to constructions, and there is a much smaller margin for potential errors
Scanning enables the creation of a digital environment, something that permits the possibility of taking a new measurement in the scanned area/object at any time. This can be used in a variety of different areas, and some of the most common areas of use are in combination with dimensional control. This means that components are correctly and accurately prefabricated, so that they are ready to be sent offshore.
By using laser scanning, you can quickly and accurately recreate GI drawings with millimetre precision.
Our competency is based on lengthy experience, and has been further developed by our experienced specialists in our Trondheim, Haugesund, and Stavanger offices.
