Compliant Tower
rating: 0+x
  • Compliant towers are much like fixed platforms. They consist of a narrow tower, attached to a foundation on the seafloor and extending up to the platform.
  • This tower is flexible, as opposed to the relatively rigid legs of a fixed platform. This flexibility allows it to operate in much deeper water, as it can 'absorb'much of the pressure exerted on it by the wind and sea.
  • Compliant towers are used between 500 and 1000 meters water depth.
