Project description

OFFSHORE WORK PLATFORMS

Crane barges are used to create offshore work platforms, to perform operations on hydraulic structures when it is not possible to operate from land.

Such a workspace can be used for a variety of proceedings, such as the installation of sheet piling, the placement of concrete pumps, to carry out dredging work and in the transport and hoisting of heavy structural elements.

Understanding and managing the stability of the crane barge during the changing load conditions is essential to the safety of these activities.

SOFTWARE

Arthe Civil & Structure has developed software with which the suitability of crane barges can de evaluated for different loads and operations, regarding stability and heel.

The stability is tested according to the applicable NVAF-guidelines for floating foundation equipment and the Regelement Onderzoek Schepen op de Rijn (ROSR 1995).
