Survey theme: Engineering Design
Research relating to the technical design, operation and life extension of offshore projects
Most of the survey data and research held on the MDE is in relation to the marine environment. However, for any major infrastructure development, there is also lots of research undertaken to understand the technical design and build of the project, including how to maximise the life of the asset and to achieve operational efficiency.
This survey theme on the MDE mostly represents strategic research that has been carried out across the offshore sectors, but also some engineering design studies for individual projects.
