ACMA Signs Cooperative Agreement with sendit, llc

Wednesday, October 27, 2004
Alan C. McClure Associates (ACMA) entered into a cooperative agreement with sendit, llc that will allow ACMA to make the innovative technology of topside float-over installation available to its clientele worldwide. “The application of the float-over method works for platforms with a variety of substructure designs, including catenary anchor leg mooring, tension leg and seabed support,” said ACMA President Scott McClure. “One of the primary advantages we see in this technology - installation can be performed with tugs, and the topside is transported and installed as a single unit. That reduces fabrication, transportation, assembly, completion and commissioning costs.”

Tor Persson, president of sendit, llc, noted, “Buoyancy of the in-place design of the substructure is utilized in the installation operations and that alleviates the requirement for specialized equipment and temporary buoyancy elements. This method also facilitates installation during more severe weather conditions since impact forces are reduced.”
