The general objective of the thesis is to carry out the structural design process of a high speed special purpose vessel which is a supply unit for offshore platforms, suitable for transporting technical personnel, cargo on deck and liquid cargo: fresh water and gasoil with a flash point above 60°C.
The design is developed in Rodriquez Cantieri Navali Spa. which has good experience with aluminium alloy vessels. Although the thesis aims to investigate the structural design of the vessel, it is needed to follow from preliminary design stages by providing its main particulars, hull form, capacity plan, stability analysis as well as the general arrangement.
