ESSENTIAL PRINCIPALS AND PRACTICES OF EPOXY RESIN MACHINERY CHOCKING FOR OFFSHORE INDUSTRIES

The concept of using epoxy resins in place of steel or cast iron to chock marine machinery is no longer novel, but the variety of uses to which chocking resins are being put is not generally realized. The Offshore Industry offers as many potential uses as any and yet has been amongst the last to take advantage of chocking resins. Exploration and production in the North Sea has resulted in larger and higher power equipment coming into service and the traditional installation techniques have been found to be uneconomical or unsatisfactory. Most of the experience drawn upon for this paper was gained in Europe on American owned rigs and vessels.
