This changed in when Eurocodes were adopted throughout Europe, including in Norway. Edited by Katie Woodward. The purpose of the Eurocodes is to provide a harmonised set of design and construction rules that are applicable throughout Europe.

However, the Eurocodes focus on onshore structures and this has to some extent resulted in important c5022 experience being excluded.

DNV GL believes that this type of certification scheme will facilitate the adoption of these materials by operators. This content is available to members only. For full functionality of this site it is necessary to enable JavaScript.

DNV-OS-C502 – Detailed Design of Offshore Concrete Structures – Draft

In particular, submerged concrete does not perform as well as above-water concrete under fatigue loading. They can also support heavy topsides and be designed to store oil. This is believed to be due fnv the concrete degradation caused by cyclic varying pore water pressure and the pumping effect of water ingressing and exiting opening and closing d502. 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.

In addition, an audit of the manufacturing facility is undertaken with a focus on the quality control procedures in place for the product. 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 oz wind and sea.


No other standard currently available to the industry covers the so lifecycle of a concrete offshore structure and dnvv detailed design guidance. Here are the instructions how to enable JavaScript in your web browser. 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. Fixed concrete structures can provide continuous dhv and fewer shutdowns as they can withstand harsher weather.

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. 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. A 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.

Updated concrete standard Historically, operators used the former Norwegian concrete standards for offshore structures. Edited by Katie Woodward Read the article online at: When it comes to designing offshore concrete structures, important oe 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.

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. One of these materials is high-strength grout. In the early days of the industry when ps platforms and installations started to be used, DNV GL experts verified cnv structures in Norway. 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.


On this basis, a floating wind turbine called ARYA, has been designed as case-study. Please sign in or become a member for free. A numerical model has been implemented and nonlinear dynamic analysis have been performed, investigating both the wind-structure and the wave-structure interaction. Unlike steel structures, concrete structures are built locally and therefore also promote the local economy.

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

Home Downstream Special reports 27 October Creating a complete code for offshore concrete structures. Concrete solutions are also being considered for projects north and east of Russia and north of Norway, amongst others. 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.

In this way, an economical contribution to the sustainability of the wind farm is possible.
