We have produced towing manuals for numerous ocean tows over many years. We produced the towing manual for Woodside’s “NORTHERN ENDEAVOUR”, the worlds largest F.P.S.O. now on location in the Timor Sea oilfields. At the time this was the largest structure towed on its own hull in the southern hemisphere.
Our manuals are a complete, stand alone document suitable for warranty reviews and safety audits and a practical “how to” manual for field engineers. The manuals cover such topics as:
— Towing Assemblies
— Certification of Equipment and Vessels
— Tug Selection and Bollard Pull Requirements
— Voyage Planning and Weather Routing
— Contingency Planning
— Emergency Procedures
— Statutory Marine Safety Compliance
— Towing Resistance and Speeds
We also offer extended services using our own experienced staff to prepare and conduct tows for clients. See Marine and Offshore Engineering Consultancy for more details.
