Current, wind, and waves are our business.
Founded in 2006, DSA is a privately owned ocean engineering consultancy and software company with locations in Victoria, BC and Halifax, NS
A proven dynamic analysis software with advanced finite element, hydrodynamic, current, wind, wave and mechanism modeling capabilities.
A proven 3D panel method hydrodynamic software for marine, offshore, defence, subsea and marine renewable applications.
Aquaculture Engineering Services
DSA assesses aquaculture moorings and structures using finite-element analysis software and advanced instrumentation.
Launch & Recovery
Safely deploying and recovering subsea equipment, such as a tidal energy turbines or AUVs,
is challenging. Comprehensive dynamic simulation can reduce risks and costs.
Complex systems require powerful analysis tools. DSA provides mooring analysis services and software built on experience.
With VROV and ProteusDS technologies, accurate real-time interactive simulation of risers and pipelines is possible: take front-end engineering design to the next level.
Tidal Energy Services
Dynamic analysis capabilities for the tidal energy industry: floating or submerged turbine platform analysis, mooring analysis, cable lay, installation analysis and so much more.
Wave Energy Services
Analyse WEC moorings, mechanism joints, wave and wind interaction, and power take offs by using ProteusDS or by working with Dynamic Systems Analysis.
Customer Success Stories
OpenHydro recently deployed the first of two 21M 1100T open centre tidal turbines in the Bay of Fundy. But before this turbine was deployed OpenHydro used ProteusDS to simulate its installation. Find out how OpenHydro used ProteusDS dynamic simulation software to reduce operational risk and so much more
Analysis of Elastic Moorings
DSA partnered with Seaflex, maker of the Seaflex mooring system to validate the use of ProteusDS for simulating Seaflex technology, and built an integrated tool to enable the rapid design of Seaflex mooring installations with ProteusDS.
Analysis of Taut-moored Platform
Sustainable Marine Energy(SME) recently completed development of the 1st generation 100KW PLAT-O tidal energy platform – but they’re not done, SME is currently developing the 2nd generation 200KW PLAT-O tidal platform. SME used ProteusDS to develop a model to predict the motions and loads on the platform and compare with tank test data. Find out how SME used ProteusDS dynamic simulation software to reduce operational risk and so much more
Subsurface Single Leg Moorings
DeepWater Buoyancy recently came to DSA with the question: how do our ADCP buoys and their moorings behave in different currents? Discover how DSA answered this question here.
