McDermott launches carbon footprint calculation tool

Published by

McDermott International yesterday launched ArborXD, a web-based tool that supports carbon-conscious decision making for energy customers seeking pathways to net-zero operations. It provides data collection, estimation and reporting on the potential carbon impact of energy facilities before construction begins.

"ArborXD is another demonstration of the powerful combination of McDermott's integrated engineering expertise, innovation and commitment to advance and enable our customers' sustainability goals," said Samik Mukherjee, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. "It is an energy industry differentiator that will help quantifiably reduce the operating footprint of the facilities we design and build."

Embedded as early as the design phase, ArborXD is applied throughout the energy project life cycle — whether a concept, front-end engineering design or an engineering, procurement, construction and installation project. As a web-based tool, ArborXD provides customers access to life cycle footprint estimates, cost tradeoff analyses, emission reduction pathways and environmental impact assessments.

"Today, we celebrate innovation at McDermott and the collaboration that made this transformative solution possible," said Rachel Clingman, Executive Vice President of Sustainability and Governance. "ArborXD directly advances McDermott's commitment to deliver net-zero facilities for the energy industry and provides a meaningful advantage as our customers work to assess and mitigate emissions."

But, this seems to be largely due to tradition. In fact, many contractors will tell you that they still install product with an excavator because that’s the way they’ve always done it.
