At present, the first buoyancy tank for the hull of Lingshui 17-2 Project is successfully assembled with the assembly accuracy satisfying the tolerance requirements, thus providing the standard for subsequent sectional assembling.
The floating platform of Lingshui 17-2 Project is composed of hull and module, and the lower-middle hull weighs 33,498 t and is composed of buoyancy tank, node and column, totaling 82 sections. P31A and P31B sections assembled this time belong to a part of P31 buoyancy tank among the four buoyancy tanks.
It is learnt that, the hull construction of Lingshui 17-2 Project is just like building blocks. It is assembled into the block by the smallest structural unit - section, and then built into the huge hull.
