Key decisions at the start of projects can create or destroy significant value.
But schedule and cost constraints limit the number of options and level
of detail that you can consider before selecting a preferred option.
Our technology, Optioneer, uses AI so that you can rapidly explore
thousands of options in much more detail, with little effort.
As the race to develop and consent grid connections begins on ScotWind, developers need to look to new approaches and technologies to avoid getting stuck in the planning process.
Our technology, Optioneer, allows developers to examine millions of export cable route options, in greater detail, to help de-risk and accelerate that process.
Together with technical experts from our partner, Xodus Group, we can provide developers with an unrivalled, integrated service to connect their ScotWind sites to the grid.

Optioneer™, uses artificial intelligence to rapidly examine options for design, routing, installation and mitigation of linear infrastructure.
This reduces the time and effort for project development teams to assess route options against multiple criteria, estimate key quantities and costs, and assess factors such as environmental impact or proximity to sensitive areas. They can therefore consider hundreds of route options in detail within the timescales and budget available.
With Optioneer the project team is able to demonstrate a robust options selection process by providing strong evidence to justify a preferred route option during consenting, consultation and environmental impact assessment.
Optioneer is a cloud-based tool that lets you automate your existing design optioneering process, efficiently capture geospatial and engineering detail and iterate through thousands of scenarios to find the best design options.
When hundreds of potential combinations of individual connections have to be assessed in a short period of time, the project team is faced with a significant amount of work to be done.
In this case study, we explore how Optioneer helped Mainstream to seamlessly shortlist optimal route options while demonstrating to stakeholders that alternatives had been considered.
High volumes of work and a challenging consenting landscape result in risks of project delays and excessive demand on internal resources.
In this case study, finer resolution for analysis and more detailed data allowed to gain insight into alignment options before site visits.
Due to changing freshwater supply patterns, Southern Water is developing a portfolio of new pipelines.
In this case study, their team uses Optioneer to assess route options for a new challenging pipeline scheme in a fraction of the time that it would take with traditional methods.
Combined with expert technical review and specialist input across multiple technical criteria the study allowed a comprehensive relative comparison of the large number of routeing options.
At the start of the study, Optioneer allowed the team to simply and efficiently narrow down the very long list of route options to a manageable shortlist and form robust basis for further detailed interrogation.
Mott MacDonald and Continuum Industries have teamed up to combine the best of human and artificial intelligence (AI).
This case study showcases how engineers can apply AI to do much faster, more detailed optioneering at the start of any linear project and save millions in project costs.
