For the design of ships and offshore structures the largest crest height which can be expected in their lifetime is of key importance. This was confirmed by several incidences e.g. in hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico during the recent years. This is why MARIN started up the CresT JIP with a number of partners. The CresT JIP is now completed and some results of the extreme wave load and response mechanisms observed during model tests with a TLP will be presented in this paper. First an overview is given of the loading and response process during the most extreme event observed. As a next step the loading and response is related to the time and spatial characteristics of the waves, as it is not per definition the highest local crest or wave height that results in the most extreme dynamic response. Furthermore, the effect of different TLP design variations and short-crestedness will be discussed.
