The present paper introduces a concept of a hybrid riser, Self Standing Hybrid Riser (SSHR), particularly in development for ultra deepwater around 3000 meters. Main problems faced in the initial definitions for design of such risers in the described scenario are discussed. Unique laboratory test with reduced model carried out in waves, current and riser top oscillation experiments in a very deepwater wave tank is shown. And, experimental results are shown and discussed, especially considering difficulties faced to carry out this experiment. Discussions are addressed in terms of vortex induced vibration (VIV) around buoyancy can, riser line pipe and flexible jumper.
