Multiconsult offers design of icing-mitigation measures for drilling rigs, production platforms and vessels based on numerical simulation models developed through strategic cold climate research projects in combination with experience from field work and field observations.
Snow and snow drift represent challenges to structures onshore and offshore. Snowdrift will increase actions on structures in general, in specific equipment, escape ways and operations.
Semi-empirical formulas are often used to assess sea spray icing on smaller vessels. However these methods will largely overestimate icing risk on larger structures. Multiconsult applies more reliable methodologies to establish a comprehensive design basis for sea spray icing delivering both safety and cost benefits.
