The course is aimed at the students who want to work with marine operations related to oil and gas platforms or offshore wind mills. The course prepares the students for their work on the master thesis within related themes through the thorough preparation of a project report.

Learning outcome

Give the students an introduction to the theme marine operations by:
  • Giving the students an introduction to vessels and response of vessels that are being used for marine operations
  • Giving the students an understanding of problems related to different types of marine operations
  • Giving the students an understanding of the limitations wind and waves pose on marine operations
  • Giving the students an understanding of the risks associated with marine operations
  • Preparing the students for work with their Master thesis through the preparation of a thorough project report

Contents

Important themes are:
This course can be considered an extension of the course OFF580, Marine Technology and design: dynamics of structures exposed to wave loads and modeling of waves as stochastic processes will here be considered. An introduction to vessel types and vessel response as well as mooring and dynamic positioning of vessels will be given. Different types of marine operations will be discussed. Themes as weather windows and marine operations, towing, crane operations and underwater installation works are part of the course. Furthermore, risk assessments associated with marine operations will be part of the course.
