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. Concrete solutions are also being considered for projects north and east of Russia and north of Norway, amongst others.
In the early days of the industry when concrete platforms and installations started to be used, DNV GL experts verified such structures in Norway.

This changed in when Eurocodes were adopted throughout Europe, including in Norway. Concrete technology has quite literally been the backbone of the oil and gas industry for nearly 40 years, ndv concrete offshore structures enabling production in the most demanding operating environments. No other standard currently available to the industry covers the whole lifecycle of a concrete offshore structure and provides detailed design guidance. A numerical model has been implemented and nonlinear dynamic analysis have been performed, dnvv both the wind-structure and the wave-structure interaction.
In addition, an audit of the manufacturing facility is undertaken with a focus on the quality control procedures in place for the product.
They can also support heavy topsides and be designed to store oil. The purpose of the Eurocodes is to provide a harmonised set of design and construction rules that are applicable throughout Europe.

This is believed to be due to the concrete degradation caused by cyclic varying pore water pressure and the dnb effect of water ingressing and exiting opening and closing cracks. Read the article online at: 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.
The analysis was based on the extreme environmental conditions of the site where it has been suggested to install the system. Dnnv 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 ls induced by wind and sea.
In this way, an economical contribution to the sustainability of the wind farm is possible.

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 particular, submerged concrete does not perform as well as above-water concrete under fatigue loading.
On this basis, a floating wind turbine called ARYA, has been designed as case-study. The standard has been developed on the basis of the experience DNV GL has gained over the years through its involvement in many offshore grouting projects. The area is well known for icebergs, which is why the c5002 have found concrete to be the most competitive solution.

Home Downstream Special reports 27 October Creating a complete code for offshore concrete structures. Fixed concrete structures can provide continuous production and fewer shutdowns as they can env harsher weather. 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. Therefore, the ps purpose of the paper is not to evaluate the wind turbine fluid xnv response, but dnc study the interaction between civil architecture and mechanical structure.
DNV GL believes that this type of certification scheme will facilitate the adoption of these materials by operators. 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.
Edited by Katie Woodward. Laboratory tests conducted by the material producer at an independent laboratory and witnessed by DNV GL are used to determine the fresh and hardened grout properties. However, the Eurocodes focus on onshore structures and this has to some extent resulted in important offshore experience being excluded.
With a low lifecycle cost, concrete can reduce maintenance expenditure compared to steel solutions. The approach defined in C ensures quality by considering all the aspects, from production to application, which are critical to the final in-place material offshore.
