Perma Ballast® for Gravity Based Structures
BTI: Experienced, Versatile, Efficient
"A gravity-based structure (GBS) is a support structure held in place by gravity. A common application for a GBS is an offshore oil platform."
Gravity based production platforms sit on the ocean floor and act as collection, processing and distribution centers for hydrocarbons.
Perma Ballast® is an ideal solution for overcoming the natural buoyancy of these structures.
Perma Ballast® is also a cost effective material for use in gravity anchoring systems or gravity boxes where subsea conditions do not allow the use of traditional anchoring systems such as suction pilings.
