Heidrun TLP


Heidrun is the world’s first tension leg platform (TLP) with a concrete hull. It represents a final break-through for concrete as a building material in floating offshore platforms. The combination of the TLP concept (originally developed by Conoco) and the use of concrete will give Heidrun a long lifetime with favourable operating and maintenance characteristics.

A special light aggregate concrete is utilized to reduce weight.

Scope of work

In a joint venture with other consulting engineers, multiconsult has performed the Detail Engineering of the concrete hull, Module Support Beams (MSB) and foundation structures.
