Investigations into the barge motions, mating load interfaces between
the topside leg and jacket leg and mooring lines tensions for floatover
installations are presented. Floatover installation means an operation of
transferring the topside onto its fixed or floating substructure dependent
mainly on the barge ballasting operation without the service of the lift
crane vessel. This paper demonstrates the capabilities of floatover
model test conducted in the wave basin of Universiti Teknologi
PETRONAS. The instrumentation and model test procedure are
described in detail. The paper presents comparisons between the
calculations and experimental results for mutual verification.
