The achievement of low cost and fast-track construction for new-build FPSO hulls are challenging problems. In order to solve these problems, the authors developed and reported unique modular design and multi-yard construction concept, “noah-FPSO Hull” . Since then, the authors continued to improve its design and expanded its flexibility for harsh environment and customer’s requests. As a result, new standardized fore/aft modules and cargo tank module have been developed to expand the flexibility.
This paper presents the design of the newly developed modules and the feasibility for harsh environment.
