Fixed & Floating Platforms
Offshore platforms are situated in some of the most hostile locations and need protection from extreme environmental conditions. In the North Sea they must withstand icy temperatures and huge waves. In the Gulf of Mexico, platforms are designed to withstand hurricane-force winds.
GL Noble Denton offers a range of analytical and practical services specifically designed for fixed platforms, including steel jackets, gravity base structures and compliant towers. We can also supervise and evaluate fixed-platform design on behalf of an operator.
Platform construction is a global business and requires design plans, plant and equipment to be sourced from several locations. Through our global network, GL Noble Denton engineers can attend on site and ensure the structure is built to the required safety and quality standards.
Transporting and installing offshore platforms are complex and delicate operations, and great care must be taken to ensure substructure and topsides are loaded out, transported and installed safely.
GL Noble Denton has developed its own, unique structural integrity management system to ensure the most up-to-date structural models and inspection data are easily accessible. Reliability and safe design of all engineered structures is vitally important to prevent catastrophic failure and ensure continuous profitable operation.
GALIOM is an asset integrity management (AIM) software tool which determines risk and shows the technical integrity of an asset. Moreover, it develops a targeted inspection and maintenance programme. GALIOM is a combined AIM and risk-based inspection tool that can be used for any oil, gas, or petrochemical facility or power plant.
