Many offshore operators are giving serious consideration to production platforms that are shaped like a ship. A concept developed by Aker Engineering AS, Norway, for a new monohull production vessel is explained, together with the philosophy behind its development. Aker makes a point of emphasizing that the vessel "is not a ship, it is a monohull production platform. It is designed to be built using simple shipyard construction methods and is full bodied in shape."
