Historically, operators used the former Norwegian concrete standards for offshore structures. In addition, an audit of the manufacturing facility is undertaken with a focus on the quality control procedures in dng for the product. With a low lifecycle cost, concrete can reduce maintenance expenditure compared to steel solutions. Here are the instructions how to enable JavaScript in your web browser.

Oz review of the offshore grouting procedure and quality control documentation is undertaken and forms the basis for the full-scale mock-up test performed to replicate the intended offshore application. Ultimately, the review of DNV OS C aims to create a unified consistent standard, covering the full lifecycle of an offshore concrete structure, that can be adopted by the industry. Despite the fact that a number of concrete platforms are still in operation, particularly in hostile marine environments worldwide, there has been little development activity since the s.

No other standard currently available to the industry covers the dnvv lifecycle of a concrete offshore structure and provides detailed design guidance.

Later, in order to study the effects on vertical cables fixed to the sea bottom, a detailed analysis of the floating anchorage TLP Tension Leg Platform was carried out. Unlike steel structures, concrete structures are built locally and therefore also oss the local economy. Concrete solutions are also being considered for projects north and east of Russia and north of Norway, amongst others. On this basis, a floating wind turbine called ARYA, has been designed as case-study.

A numerical model has been implemented and nonlinear dynamic analysis have been performed, investigating both the wind-structure and the wave-structure interaction.

This changed in when Eurocodes were adopted throughout Europe, including in Norway. Concrete advantages In the polar extremes, concrete structures are durable and robust to resist collisions with icebergs and are resistant to abrasion from floating ice. In this way, an economical contribution to the sustainability of the wind farm is possible.


To address the current offshore concrete developments, DNV GL is now reviewing the Offshore Concrete Standard to provide updates and new guidance, particularly for harsh locations. Read the article online at: The approach vnv in C ensures quality by considering all the aspects, from production to application, which are critical to the final in-place material offshore.

In the early days of the industry when concrete platforms and installations started to be used, DNV GL experts verified such structures in Norway. The analysis was based on the extreme environmental conditions of the site where it has been suggested to install the system.

Edited by Katie Woodward Read the article online at: Fixed concrete structures can provide continuous production and fewer shutdowns as they can oz harsher weather.

Edited by Katie Woodward. First of all, the 2 tourist-receptive structures Hotel and bar-restaurant around the wind tower have been designed and checked.

The area is well known for icebergs, which is why the operators have found concrete to be the most competitive solution.

They can also support heavy topsides and be designed to store oil. TLP consists of a nearly fully submerged cylindrical platform, which supports a 5 MW wind turbine and is linked to the sea bottom by 3 ties which assure stability and limited tilting, even under the worst loads induced by wind and sea.


When it comes to designing offshore concrete structures, important effects that need to be considered are, for example, the concrete fatigue performance under water, effects of water pressure in pores and cracks and principles for watertightness. This is believed to be due to the concrete degradation caused by cyclic varying pore water pressure and the pumping effect of water ingressing and exiting opening and closing cracks.

However, the Eurocodes focus on onshore structures and this has to some extent resulted in important offshore c052 being excluded. Concrete technology has quite literally been the backbone of the oil and gas industry for nearly 40 years, with concrete offshore structures enabling production in the most demanding operating environments. Home Downstream Special reports 27 October Creating a complete code for offshore concrete structures. This paper aims to show a refurbishment project of an off-shore wind turbine, combining its natural purpose of exploiting the wind resources in the windiest sea areas along the coasts of Italy Sardinia, Sicily, Abruzzo, Apulia together with the possibility of using its structure as a tourist accommodation.

Another interesting and unique feature of the updated DNV-OS-C is the systematics it provides for the qualification of new and innovative materials intended for offshore use. This is now changing rnv the renewed interest in robust concrete structures for the Arctic environment and for liquefied natural gas LNG storage.

DNV GL believes that this type of certification scheme will facilitate the adoption of these materials by operators. Therefore, the main purpose of the paper is not to evaluate the wind turbine fluid dynamic response, but to study the interaction between civil architecture and mechanical structure.

In particular, submerged concrete does not perform as well as above-water concrete under fatigue loading.
