This paper presents a typical floatover design in the shallow water and benign environment of Bohai Bay, China and the major floatover installation devices, as well as the nonlinear time-domain mating analysis. The nonlinear mating simulations are performed using SIMO based on the hydrodynamic properties of the floatover barge, obtained by WADAM, from the linear diffraction analysis in frequency domain. The mating analysis yields numerical findings in selecting and designing floatover devices critical to the success of the floatover operations, thus minimizing any potential operation risks and enabling the offshore operations as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
