More options, greater detail,
much earlier in projects.

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.

Some of the world's leading companies use Optioneer:


Pipelines - Water, Hydrogen and Gas
Power Lines and Cables
Overhead, Subsea and Underground

Project stages

Early project scoping
Route optioneering
Environmental impact
Automation of design


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.

Transform your project development process

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.
