Offshore Production Platforms
Compliant towers constructed similar as fixed platforms. They consist of a narrow tower, mounted to a foundation on the seafbed extended up to the platform. These offshore compliant towers are flexible, as opposed to the relatively rigid legs of a fixed production platform. This structural flexibility allows it to operate in much deeper water, as the construction can take much of the loads exerted on it by the wind and waves. Despite its flexibility, the compliant tower platforms are strong enough to withstand even hurricane conditions.
