Opus and CD-adapco have already commenced working on mutual collaboration projects relating to the correlation and validation between physical and computational modelling, particularly in the field of analysing the effect of rocking motions – experienced, for example, onboard FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading) vessels – on fluid separation processes.
Nigel Weir, managing director of Opus, commented on the forming of the strategic partnership: “We are pleased to partner with CD-adapco, a world renowned player in engineering simulation technology and solutions.
“With both companies sharing similar, complementary strategies, we fit extremely well together and I’ve no doubt the partnership will assist us both in further enhancing the services we offer clients.
“For example, we are now in a position to apply the CFD software more extensively and with CD-Adapco possessing more computing power and run time availability, we will now be able to work more efficiently on larger scale projects.
“We look forward to a mutual, highly beneficial relationship, which will see both companies further cement their positions as industry leaders in their individual fields.”
