Makai Ocean Engineering, based in Hawaii, has released an updated version of its planning and simulated subsea power and telecom cable installations software, MakaiPlan Pro.

The programme allows the user to perform powerful 3-D, dynamic simulations of a submarine cable installation.

Venkata Jasti, manager of submarine cable systems at Makai, said: “We are continuously improving our products to satisfy the evolving needs of our users.”

“Either it is new tools to address power cable installations or adding automated features to make our users’ lives easier.”

The operator of the software can quickly simulate an entire cable lay in advance from the comfort of the office at up to 50 times faster than real-time.

This can be useful for developing ship installation plans, performing pre-lay and post-lay analysis, and also for operator training.

“The release is part of our ongoing effort to upgrade all of our products to take advantage of the increased computational capabilities of the next generation of PCS,” Mr Jasti added.

Makai provides tools for three primary phases of a cable project. MakaiPlan takes care of the route planning and engineering, installation planning and simulation is then done by MakaiPlan Pro, and finally the MakaiLay is for the real-time at-sea cable installation control.

Mr Jasti concluded: “A major MakaiPlan upgrade was released last year. Now we are releasing MakaiPlan Pro and we intent to release and upgrade for MakaiLay later this year.
