Four decades of experience with offshore platforms
Ramboll has substantial global experience with offshore platforms. Since the 1970’s, we have been involved in major development projects and modifications covering topsides, jackets, bridges and modules. With our harsh environments expertise in High Pressure/High Temperature fields, corrosion and winterisation of equipment for arctic areas, we are ready to venture with our clients to unexplored areas.
Our multidisciplinary service portfolio for offshore platforms covers the entire project life cycle from early phase studies and detailed design to modifications, lifetime extension projects, revamps, tie-ins, maintenance, process improvements and offshore decommissioning.
Our services within offshore platforms cover:
- Project management
- Field development and brownfield projects
- Financial studies, conceptual studies and FEED
- Detailed engineering and EPC projects
- Modifications & maintenance incl. lifetime extension, production optimisation and revamps
- Offshore decommissioning
- Offshore substation design
- Structural Integrity Management
Early phase studies and detailed design for greenfield projects
By performing comprehensive early phase studies, our specialists develop feasible offshore platform concepts, including cost-effective platforms for marginal fields and offshore substations for wind farms.
We can provide precision weight and cost estimations for all types of platform projects, enabling our clients to make informed investment decisions.
Lifetime extension and modifications expertise
Ramboll carries out a wide variety of modification projects ranging from partial to complete revamps. We carry out system upgrades and debottlenecking projects to optimise production on mature fields. Our advanced analysis software enables us to calculate exact fatigue lives that can be used to significantly extend a platform’s lifetime. Our expertise also covers:
- Weight monitoring
- 3D scanning and surveys
- Maintenance planning
Offshore structures are billion dollar investments. With True Digital Twins, operation and maintenance costs can be reduced and decisions on whether to extend their lifetime can be based on a genuine understanding of the structures. This is intelligent asset management. Watch video:
