Mega-Float Structures


Mega-Float Structures

Japan is looking into development of floating marine structures as an alternative method for utilizing the ocean space. The Mega-Float Technological Research Association comprising of shipbuilders and steelmakers implements research and development project of Very Large Floating Structures. The typical structure has a span of several kilometers and a lifetime of over 100 years. Floating structures have a wide variety of applications, including airports, harbor terminals, energy-related facilities, and leisure facilities.
The project’s first phase, which is now completed, resulted in establishing on-sea joining technology, proven design methods, long term (100 years) anti-corrosion protection methods, motion evaluation methods, evaluation of temperature, noise and vibration impact on the structure. It has also been confirmed that the floating structure has negligible environmental impact.
