oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Design of the topsides structures

Volume 33, Issue 9

The topsides structures for an offshore platform, although serving essentially the same purpose as in an onshore process facility, have to be modularized to facilitate onshore fabrication and subsequent movement of the relatively large packages for installation offshore in their final location. The movement of the substructures, the size and weight of each package and the availability of transportation vessels and equipment place demands and constraints on the design that make it different from conventional onshore process plant design.
