Deep pit attracts full-tendon Shenzi TLP
With its deep pit of 30 metres, the Offshore Basin offers the possibility of testing TLPs with their full-tendon length, even in ultra-deep waters. This allows reliable testing, including important effects such as set-down and the related airgap in large waves. These benefits attracted BHP Billiton, MODEC and SEA Engineering to select MARIN for Shenzi TLP model testing. Report explains.
