Ramboll possesses an outstanding specialist experience and expertise within the analysis, assessment and design of offshore steel structures. For 35 years we have been the key consultant within this area in the Danish part of the North Sea and in the past decade our knowledge has extended to international waters.
We have extensive experience in developing jacket, riser and topside design activities into integrated platforms. Our services include all elements of fit-for-purpose platform designs. Since 1981, we have designed 22 jackets and 14 mono-column platforms – which now stand in the North Sea and the Arabian Gulf.
Pioneering and perfecting design
In cooperation with operators Ramboll has been instrumental in pioneering and perfecting the cost-effective mono-column platform – designed to recover oil from marginal fields at minimal cost. The monopod design is also a proven, cost-effective solution for the successive development of traditional oil fields in response to a possible production increase.
Our services cover:
- Feasibility, conceptual and detailed design
- Structural analysis and hazard engineering
- Dynamic impact/pushover analyses and wave in deck load scenarios
- Assessment of existing structures
