Integrated Offshore Simulation Software

Advanced Hydrostatic and Hydrodynamic Simulation Software

Conquer the complexity of marine operations by streamlining analyses with automated workflows.

What is MOSES?

MOSES is a uniquely integrated simulation software that helps you meet complex offshore project challenges more effectively with the efficiency and flexibility. MOSES is available in three different variations, so you can choose what is best for you.

Automate Performance Analysis

Quickly analyze floating systems across a range of operating conditions using simulation language to define environmental conditions, specify mooring configurations, and run integrated solvers in a unified environment.

Model Offshore Vessels and Platforms

Use interactive graphical tools specific to offshore structures to prepare models of vessels and floating systems. Help ensure accurate loading definition by visualizing tank and compartment models during modification.

Simulate Marine Operations

Leverage comprehensive and customizable scripting tools and pre-defined macros to explore design alternatives and manage complex installation sequence

*Prices vary per region. For more options, see licensing and subscriptions section.

User Quote

“After our innovative solution was first practiced and proved in the Sewol recovery project in early 2017, this solution is frequently used in the offshore industry for large shipwreck recoveries in one piece. This solution has further proved to be the best wreck-removal method in terms of environmental friendliness, as well as engineering and economic viability.”

Frequently Asked Questions

MOSES is integrated offshore simulation software that helps you minimize offshore project risks with optimal designs. MOSES helps you cost-effectively analyze stability and motions in the frequency domain. You can perform hull and compartment modeling, as well as strip theory and 3D diffraction analysis.

While many MOSES tutorials can be found on Bentley Communities, here are some FREE MOSES and SACS webinars available in our eStore.

If you want to receive tailored training or attend a MOSES course that is specific to your project requirement, Bentley offers extra training and mentoring services. You can choose from tailor-made training, on-demand learning, consulting services, mentoring and more. Learn more about Expert Services here.

The price of MOSES, MOSES Advanced, and MOSES Ultimate varies per region. While there are various types of licensing available, a common choice is the 12-month practitioner license offered through Bentley’s eStore. When you purchase through the eStore you get a Virtuoso Subscription which means you get both the software AND the training, expert services, and custom mentoring you need to get started quickly.
