The article offers information on the new dry-tree design of Heave and Vortex-Induced Motion Suppressed (HVS) class semisubmersible solution from low-motion deep draft semisubmersible developer Technip. It states that HVS design includes a slight modification to the HVS class hull form and evolution of its shape from the wet tree semisubmersible hull. Moreover, it mentions the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis technology in the validation and development of the solution.
