Bennett Offshore

Design and Conversion of Barges

Bennett engineers evaluated the structural capacity of the Keppel FELS Can Do barge using a combined finite element model of the two vessels. Bennett provided intact, transit, and damaged stability analyses for the lift as well as submerged damaged stability analyses for critical submerged phases of the lifting process.
