This course is intended to review fundamentals of all types of fixed offshore structures and, in the case of fixed platforms, will cover applications of these principles.

The overall objective is to provide participants with an understanding of the design, construction and risk based maintenance for offshore platforms, specifically, the theory and process of such design. The use of current, applicable engineering methods in the design of fixed offshore platforms.

Learning Objectives

Participants attending the programme will:

  • More information about offshore structure
  • Offshore structure design
  • Construction for offshore structure
  • Installation of offshore structure
  • Risk based under water inspection
  • Repair of offshore structure
  • Implementing maintenance plan

Target Audience

 Structural Engineers

  • Construction Engineers
  • Project Engineers
  • Maintenance Engineers
  • Project Professionals

Training Methodology

 In addition to the traditional lecture delivery, the course emphasises the use of group discussions and actual design problems in order to ensure participants can put the newly learned concepts to use. Up-to-date technology in design, construction and maintenance will be explained through the use of videos and case study of real projects. Besides, an overview about SACS software will also be provided.
