Webinar: The art of the transportation engineering

KNVTS Afdeling Amsterdam

Wednesday January 19th 2021, 7:30 PM CET

Speaker: Ton Bos 

This lecture will be given in English.

Ever since the start of offshore oil and gas and nowadays wind offshore exploration, the need for offshore constructions and infrastructure has been increasing in number, size and complexity. Topsides, monopolies, jackets, jack-up rigs, TLP’s, spar buoys and FPSO’s are designed for specific offshore operations and conditions. To enable these structures weighing up to 50.000 metric ton to be installed and commissioned, safe loading, transport and offloading operations are required. 

During this lecture Mr. Bos will explain the most important aspects of transporting these offshore giants. In addition to the technical content, it will be explained the rules and regulations important to warranty surveyors on transport jobs. The lecture will refer to DNV rules and regulations in addition to practical business cases.  

The lecture enables to gain understanding of factors influencing their structures during ocean transport. This lecture allows the participant to be introduced to the world of marine warranty surveyors. Those participants will learn about different modes of ocean transport and learn the pros and cons of all types of operations. The ins and outs of the life of a surveyor and superintendent will be addressed to learn to navigate through the demands of ships’ captains, project managers, operational managers and their contractor.
