The objective of the activity was to obtain more information concerning the implementation of the dewatering system, and the analyses and model tests underpinning the need to reinstate dewatering as a constructional measure.
We also wished to perform spot checks of non-conformity handling, the analysis base and Shell's quality assurance of analyses, tests and acceptability assessments of non-conformities.
Non-conformities were identified in connection with:
- Fatigue analyses
- Non-conformity handling
In addition, an improvement point was identified in connection with wave-load calculations.
