Structural analysis of FPSO

FPSO structural integrity ensured

Design ready for transport and operation.

Client: Designer of storage and equipment for the oil industry.

Tough Problem: FPSO, destined for operation in South-East Asia, required complete structural integrity assessment prior to transport and commissioning.

Practical Solution: Complete structural analysis was performed to assess the strength of the structure.

A variety of loading scenarios were considered which included lifting of the FPSO module, wind and wave loads during transportation and unbalanced forces from the equipment during operation and self weight. Design modifications were recommended to the satisfaction of the client.

Bottom Line: A world class structural analysis capability ensured complete structural integrity.
