The company is also established and well known for fabrication of Decks and Jackets for the Renewables Wind Energy market.

"One of the key requirements of an O&G or Renewables sector of business is Material and Weld Traceability. Pinnacle has provided services to Eversendai with the 'MatriX-EPS' product since 2014. However, Pinnacle has been in this field with me since 2001. Based on my experience from my previous employer, I suggested that Eversendai Offshore implement MatriX-EPS and hence this was procured in my current company.
The projects supported by MatriX-EPS are numerous. In fact all the projects executed in Eversendai Offshore was supported by MatriX-EPS for Material Control. Of late, we have made several enhancements in Quality side to ensure full and proper traceability of weld records.
Eversendai has executed all types of projects in the O&G and Marine industry. We have built Modules to be installed on islands, Liftboats, Jackets, Topsides, Skids, Control Building, Accommodation, Structural Frames and several others.
Since the Pinnacle team is from a fabrication and design background, the team lead have excellent knowledge in the field of fabrication and they have tremendous understanding in the Quality, Traceability and Materials Management. The support provided by Pinnacle is prompt via their helpdesk system. Interestingly, Pinnacle support goes beyond just software troubleshooting, they also provide efficient ideas or solutions to practical problems in the yard and this is only possible due to their extensive experience in the yard.
MatriX-EPS takes care of Materials Management from start to finish. It starts with bill of materials from a 3D Model dump, consolidates the data with its databases and organises suitably such that, a vendor can understand. Of course this is done by customised tables in the background. Customisation is a one-time effort and the company reaps the benefits during the entire life of MatriX-EPS. Further MatriX-EPS takes care of procurement activities, receipt, material control, shop fabrication, welding, welder qualification, etc, etc. This software helps from the start to finish of most operations in fabrication"
