BARGING OF OFFSHORE DRILLING PLATFORM MOS TRIDENT (DUBAI)


Barging of MOS TridentBarging of MOS Trident

KKE supported the specialist consultant in the structural aspects of the float-on / off barging operation of an 8,200 tons drilling platform on a semi-submergible barge.  The critical structural checking involves non-linear analyses of the barge hull shell-like structure under its existing conditions when subject to the enormous loads from the drilling platform.  Post-buckling behaviours of stiffened-plate shell structure have been studied in great details and the complicated barging operations have been carried out safely as predicted and with great success.
