3-legged jacket

KCI has designed a special 3-legged jacket with a lot of innovative features. Cost reduction in terms of fabrication & installation is considerable when comparing this design to conventional 4-legged jackets. 
But even when comparing it to the few 3-legged jacket designs available in the market today, KCI's design is truly innovative.
The design goals which KCI set for the new jacket design where formulated as follows:
 
  • The design of the jacket should lead to efficient use of deck space on the transportation & installation vessel
  • The design should lead to reduced engineering, fabrication & installation costs
  • The design should be such that only one single design can cover a wide range of water depths in a wind park
