Alphard Maritime: Marine Offshore Construction

Offshore construction is the installation of structures and facilities in a marine environment, usually for the production and transmission of electricity, oil, gas, and other resources. Construction and pre-commissioning is typically performed as much as possible inland to optimize the costs and risks of installing large offshore platforms.

Alphard Maritime not only provides marine assets and construction materials but also participates in Offshore Construction projects in the Middle East and the Indian sub-continent.

Offshore construction strategies

Different construction strategies we help implement:

  • Full construction for offshore facility done onshore: The installation is towed to the site floating on its own buoyancy after it has been assembled in a land site. Bottom founded structures are lowered to the seabed by ballasting, whilst floating structures are held in position with substantial marine systems.
  • Modular Construction: The size of offshore lifts can be reduced by making the construction modular, with each module being constructed onshore, and then lifted using a crane vessel into place onto the platform
  • Specialist floating hotel vessels known as ‘flotels’ are used to accommodate the workers during the construction and hookup phases. This is a high-cost activity due to the limited space and access to materials.
