About Mocean Offshore BV
MOCEAN is an offshore and marine engineering contractor with a specialisation in complex hydrodynamic studies. The core business is performing analyses on wave – current – wind - structure interaction, offshore operations and installation as well as mooring systems design. 40% to 50% of our projects are industry innovations. For this purpose we increased our capabilities in system engineering and offer a wide range of services from decision support tools for offshore operations to heave compensated access systems. We help our clients to understand the impact of the environment on their offshore system and hence lay the groundwork for effective decision making with regards to technical and commercial aspects, enable increased workability and allow the development of innovative and industry first solutions.
Role in the Project
MOCEAN is work package leader of WP1: Business Case. In this role MOCEAN is ultimately responsible for the assessment of the economic viability of the Space@Sea project. In this line we conduct the review of existing research projects, prepare the business risk and opportunity assessment and prepare the go to market analysis. Further we play a major role in integrating the different industries to a holistic multi-use platform.
Within WP4 Shape, forces and kinematics MOCEAN is responsible for assessing the loads the design of the structure. Based on the basic design and input requirements from other work packages such as environmental forces etc. a detail design will be established. For this purpose a finite element analysis will be performed in order to establish the structural design and material properties.
Within WP5 Installation, Monitoring, O&M MOCEAN is responsible to assess various operation and maintenance concepts. Further a comparison to conventual solutions will be performed in order to identify any benefits or disadvantages. Within WP9 Transport@Sea MOCEAN will evaluate the multi body dynamics related to the transshipment operations.
