ON THE INSTALLATION PLANNING OF A SELF-FLOATING OFFSHORE PLATFORM

This paper describes the installation planning for a major self-floating offshore platform that recently has been installed in the North Sea. Attention is given to the naval architectural aspects of the installation planning with particular emphasis on three phases: analysis and design, scale-model testing, and field activity preceding and during the actual installation operation. The paper describes the state-of-the-art in the installation planning of major self-floating offshore platforms of the kind being designed and built worldwide, and demonstrates the close coordination of many diverse disciplines in planning such installation operations.
