HiLoad

HiLoad® Qualification Program The HiLoad Technology has gone through an extensive qualification program. The most important activities are summarized below.

Innovative Offshore Solutions

- Feasibility study and risk assessment - Docking model tests at Marintek, Norway - Basic design and approval in principle by DNV and ABS - DP position keeping and Hurricane Katrina survival tests at Marintek, Norway - Wind tunnel tests at DMI, Denmark - Full scale test of patented friction attachment system - Operational HAZID/HAZOP - Detailed design, engineering, vessel construction and Class Approval by DNV - Vessel commissioning and extensive sea trials - North Sea harsh environment testing and operations. - Field specific simulations for West Africa and Brazil at MARIN, Holland The HiLoad Technology is now a mature solution, and has been technically approved by several major oil companies.

HiLoad® Attachment System Each HiLoad is equipped with the patented HiLoad Attachment System arranged in cells surrounded by a dual gasket system. The inner gasket is of compression type, with a long track record from use in subsea tunnels. The outer gasket is a lip type, in use on e.g. submarine docking units. As the HiLoad is deballasted into contact with a hull bottom, the gaskets will create a number of cofferdams between the HiLoad and the vessel. By draining the entrapped water and at the same time letting in air from the surface, an atmospheric pressure is obtained within each cell. The hydrostatic pressure acting underneath the HiLoad will hence be transferred as a distributed load across the entire contact area. Despite a contact force of several thousand tonnes, the effect on the vessel is minimal. The contact force will basically be the same as the hydrostatic load prior to connection.
