Abstract

Current issues of increasing material scarcity, environmental awareness and the willingness to explore more sustainable technologies are opening the way for the offshore industry to improve the sustainability of offshore accommodation modules. The objective of this paper is to investigate if Design for Disassembly is an appropriate method to increase the sustainability of Offshore Accommodation Modules. A method is developed from literature and tested on Self-installing Platforms. The case study delivered a flexible and connectable module system for accommodations. Life Cycle Analysis will determine environmental benefits in material and energy use. Functional assessment promises added functionality in terms of flexibility in use, maintenance, upgrading and remanufacturing. First reasoning about costs suggests lower life cycle costs and lower transformation costs.
