Special purpose vessels
As the name already suggests, this type of vessels are at sea for a special purpose. Their primary task is drilling for oil, laying cables, creating artificial islands, laying cables, installing wind turbines, an so on. These ships should be able to sail the sea as efficient and safe as possible, but should also be able to be keep position or to follow a certain track while on the job. The typical full hull form of these type of vessels, the use of thrusters and nozzled propellers and the requirements on dynamic positioning and workability require a special approach with respect to design, calculations and model tests. Issues which are usually addressed are flow separation, dynamic positioning capability, thruster-thruster and thruster-hull interaction, moonpool oscillations, loads on legs of jack-up vessels, seakeeping behaviour at transit and zero speed and dynamic tracking.
