Difference between UK & Norwegian FPSOs

Difference between UK & Norwegian FPSOs

Difference between UK & Norwegian FPSOs

One can note that all Norwegian built FPSOs have forward-mounted accommodation units, whilst UK built FPSOs have a mix of both forward and stern mounted accommodation units. Why is this so? Is there a specific reason for Norwegian fpsos to be built in this manner? (perhaps legislative reason)
Thanks in advance.

RE: Difference between UK & Norwegian FPSOs

Fire and smoke don't get blown toward and into the accommodations.

Independent events are seldomly independent.

RE: Difference between UK & Norwegian FPSOs

I agree BigInch. But why do all Norwegian FPSOs have bow mounted acc. whilst the British FPSO are a mixture of approx. 40% stern and 60% fwd mounted acc. ? Is there a norwegian regulation which enforces this?

Thanks for your fast reply.

RE: Difference between UK & Norwegian FPSOs

I'm not familiar with FPSO design regs.
In fact I'm already in over my head.
But ... I did find some stuff ... Section 2.7 here,
Section 2.3 here is very interesting,
Maybe some more clues here. No time to look more.

Independent events are seldomly independent.

RE: Difference between UK & Norwegian FPSOs

Thanks again biginch. Some very interesting stuff especially in link 2.
