In order to minimize the movement caused by waves and increase the lifetime of the platform, additional damping was required. The necessary amount of damping was calculated by the general engineering company for this project. Based on this information the Tuned Mass Damper was designed and engineered by Flow Engineering.
The fabrication of the TMD with a moving mass of 27 metric ton was done in close cooperation with the manufacturer of the platform, conforming to the rigorous standards common in the offshore industry.
The TMD is located on the top deck at a height of 28 meters above sea level.
The total height of the structure is 66 meter.
