SYNOPSIS

The launching and upending of jacket structures can be considered as the most critical phases during an offshore operation. As a result, these activities are placed under high importance during engineering analyses. Launching of a jacket involves transferring the jacket from the construction yard or barge into the water. It often involves the use of specialized equipment such as launching frames, skidding systems, and/or barges. It also requires a specialized contractor to support the operation.Upending refers to the process of rotating the jacket from a horizontal position to a vertical position in the water. This is often done using controlled flooding or ballasting of specific compartments on the jacket, causing the latter to rotate into the desired orientation. Once upended, the jacket can be towed to its installation site or prepared for its intended purpose.Launching and upending are crucial in the installation of offshore structures such as oil platforms and wind turbines.Careful planning and execution are required to ensure the safety and success of the operation. To deeply understand how the structure reacts at each phase, structural engineer and naval architect perform a series of extensive computer simulations. Both must work together to ensure the works are performed accurately

This webinar will cover the following topic:
• What is launching and upending as part of pre-service analysis?
• What is the engineering works involved in each phases
• Examples from past projects.
