There are multiple types of offshore platforms depending on the applications and the depth of the water. Most of the platforms are used in the shallow waters of the continental shelf. But 95% of the offshore platforms in the world are jacket platforms built from steel tubular components and fixed at the bottom of the seabed. Jacket platforms are used for exploration and hydrocarbon production, mainly at depths up to 300 meters.
The Ladon Jacket Platform is a bottom support platform. The main structure of the Ladon Jacket is a pipe of tubular steel. Like a cage, the jacket protects the piping network through the seabed. This tubular space frame protects pipes from the lateral load. The Ladon Jacket has a structure height of 71,800 meters, a waterline height of 65,300 meters, and has three legs (tripod), braces, caisson, j-tube, boat landing, and mudmat.
Tekla Structures proved highly effective when modeling offshore structures. We utilized the software to make the offshore platform, topside, jacket, and bridge.
