On this Floater the final and complete structure is placed, as the floater will serve as the structural foundation and base.
The floater has an outer diameter of 108m, which is suitable for production in world’s widest drydock. Height from the bottom to the top of floater is determined based on the weight of topside (e.g. apartments, hotel, shopping centers etc.) in order to provide a safe distance from sea level to these facilities.
The floater is made of a double bottom- and double side concrete construction as an extreme safety measure to avoid flooding of areas such as car parks and technical rooms. It is worth noting that even the largest concrete structures in the North Sea submerged to 300m below the surface are single hull constructions only.
