FPSO & Offshore Structures

We have been providing structural design and analysis of floating and fixed offshore structures since 2001, and engage in both conversion and new-building projects. Viking Systems has become a major provider in FPSO and FSO vessel structural design activities (FEED, Execution, and detailed design phases) with a primary focus on newbuilt and tanker conversion activities and also life extension projects to extend the service life of FPSO and FSO vessels while they remain in offshore operation.

Viking Systems has provided structural services on 100+ FPSO FEED projects over a 20 year period, of which 30+ have become actual installations using our detailed hull and foundation structural engineering process during the execution phase. The offshore installations are newbuilt or converted ULCC, VLCC, and Suezmax tankers, located in Brazil, West Africa, North Sea, Australia, and SE Asia locations. Viking is highly experienced in the selection of suitable tanker candidates for conversion by assessment of surveys and thickness gaugings to determine an expected amount of steel renewal at conversion, as well as the design of reinforcements required to remain in a design environment for longer periods such as 20, 25 or more years of operation.
