Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering

Naval architects manage all structural, stability, motion and mooring related issues associated with Woodside’s current and future fleet of floating production storage and offloading facilities (FPSOs), and are also integral to maintaining Class and Marine Statutory compliance.  Naval architects are involved with mooring of drilling rigs and all aspects of offshore installation, construction and decommissioning operations.

Marine engineers manage marine systems including, propulsion, steering, cargo, ballast, steam, lifeboats and lifesaving equipment for our existing and future fleet of FPSOs for the full asset life cycle, from concept design through to operations and decommissioning, continually ensuring compliance with all Marine Statutory and Class requirements.
