Ship to Ship: operability & design

Two large bodies operating in each vicinity impact each other. Aktis thorougly understand and appreciates the impact of the influence fields of a large ship affecting the wind, current and wave response of calling carriers and the effect on approach operations, including evaluating the feasibility of ship-to-ship and ship-to-structure operations.

A critical aspect affecting the reliability of the results is the fidelity with which the metocean conditions are represented. For example, if there are cross seas or large differences in wave and current direction, the FSRU and LNGC may be subjected to beam waves. In general, these have a much worse effect on the availability than head waves. The strong point of Aktis’approach is the availability of all aspects (coastal metocean conditions, ship hydrodynamics and ship response) that determine the outcome.
