Central system to monitor geological risks 16 Aug 2018

Seequent News Release

In order to improve geological risk management for underground construction projects, geology teams and project managers have access to a single source of data with the introduction of Central 2.0, a central management platform that co-ordinates all geological 3D modelling activity for an organisation.

Central was developed by software company Seequent for use with its Leapfrog 3D geological modelling software as part of the collaborative industry development plans to better meet future needs in the civil engineering, environmental and geothermal energy industries. The package has been updated and improved with the release of Central 2.0.

“The critical importance of managing geological risk has been demonstrated by many recent high profile project failures. We help companies to manage their geological risks by communicating information to project stakeholders and enabling risk management plans to be developed,” said Shaun Maloney, Seequent CEO.

Seequent has invested in product research and development to extend its overall capability. Organisations are often running multiple projects at the same time from different locations, creating a huge amount of geological data that will influence important investment and environmental decisions.

“We operate in a very competitive market and our people have to find ways to be innovative to continue to build competitive advantage. Central 2.0 allows us to collect, process, interrogate and visualise data in a live environment – which is a big shift forward for our industry, from the Stone Age to the Digital Age. Rather than going through three layers of people to get the data, it is at the click of a button,” said Mike McClelland,Director of Information.

Central allows better collaboration between project teams and stakeholders to give a clear understanding about what has changed in a project over time and why.

“Central 2.0 is helping our non-modellers get closer to the modelling process, review the models, and use them to make important project decisions,” said Cristobal Valenzuela Millas, Senior 3D Geo Modeller at the small exploration company Quantum Pacific Exploration Chile (QPXC).

“For civil engineering projects, Central 2.0 offers a platform for exchange and versioning control of our models, and is a very effective tool for communication and visualisation of the latest factual data. It connects our site geos with the back-office staff and allows us to provide the latest results from site investigation, geological documentation and model updates straight to designers and reviewers,” said Jonas Weil, Engineering Geologist for Elea-IC group, a large private engineering and consulting company in Slovenia.

Central 2.0 can be used in a company network or hosted in the cloud.

Seequent has headquarters in Christchurch, New Zealand and offices across Asia/Pacific, Africa, South America, North America and Europe.
