THE IMPACT OF GREEN WATER ON FPSO DESIGN

Based on a series of model tests this paper presents an orientation into the various aspects which play a role in the green water loading on FPSO units. First the occurring phenomena are described. Second the effect of the environmental conditions, such as the wave height, wave period and current velocity, are highlighted. Finally several design aspects are considered. The influence of the bow shape, the position of the equipment of the deck and the shape of breakwaters is discussed.
