GENERAL ARRANGEMENT DESIGN
ASSESSMENT DETAILS

© The University of Tasmania 2020

Unit Code JEE252 Unit Title Introduction to Maritime Engineering Design
Type Technical Report Date Due 1600 18th September 2020
Task General Arrangement Design
Length Maximum of 15 Pages + Appendices
Description The aim of this individual project is to develop a general arrangement plan for an
offshore platform. A client brief will be provided, from which you will be required to
design an appropriate solution considering all the necessary regulatory requirements
associated with maritime engineering design. You will be required to demonstrate
compliance with the applicable design codes, rules, standards and regulations, with
considerations regarding wellbeing, sustainability, engineering ethics and human
centred design. You will be required to present your design in a technical report format
(including drawings) which addresses, but is not limited to, the following aspects:
• Outline of design background
• Functional requirements and capabilities
• Applicable design codes, rules, standards, and regulations
• Overview of design methodology
• Considerations for sustainability, human centred design, and engineering ethics.
• Technical drawings of design outcomes
Assessment This individual assessment is worth 25% of the full unit marks. Please read the
instructions and design brief in detail. Consultation with the lecturer is encouraged.
Please refer to assignment rubric for details regarding specific requirements for each
assessment criteria.

Assessment Criteria:
1. Select and apply suitable analysis, design methodologies and creativity in order to produce
an engineering solution that satisfies the requirements of a client brief for a maritime
engineering design project at a conceptual design level. (20%)
2. Demonstrate and apply knowledge of regulatory, practical and economic constraints in
the conceptual design of marine structures, ocean vehicles and maritime engineering
systems with a special emphasis in sustainable design. (30%)
3. Effectively combine the use of teamwork, oral and written communication skills,
conventional design tools and industry-specific software to create the design drawings,
digital models and technical documents required to report and assess a maritime
engineering design project, at a conceptual level, in accordance with industry standards
and codes of practice. (35%)
4. Demonstrate an understanding of wellbeing, sustainability, engineering ethics and human
factors in the design context by examining the engineer’s obligations to the environment,
the society, their clients, and to the profession. (15%)

Design Brief
A potential new oil reservoir has been identified in the Gulf of Mexico, and exploratory drilling is to be
undertaken using a newly designed semi-submersible mobile offshore drilling unit (MODU). The design
of the structure has been divided into numerous design components, of which your engineering firm was
successful in their bid to complete the design of the MODUs living quarters.
Your task is to develop a general arrangement for the living quarters of the MODU which incorporates
all the elements required to comply with the applicable maritime conventions, design codes and design
standards. Considerations must be made for end-user operation (HCD process) and appropriate
provisions must be made to ensure compliance with the emergency response regulations including fire
detection and prevention systems. The design of the living quarters will also encompass the design of
the platform’s helideck facilities and associated infrastructure.
The general arrangement of the structure should also illustrate the electrical, plumbing and HVAC
systems associated with offshore platform living areas.
Requirements for the general arrangement include but are not limited to:
• Cabin Areas
• Recreation Areas
• Dining Room
• Galley
• Coffee Bars
• Smoking Rooms
• Laundry Rooms
• Administration Areas
• Maritime Control Room
• Equipment Rooms
• Medical Centres
• Changing Rooms
• Helideck
The following parameters have been identified regarding the environmental conditions in which the
MODU will operate, and approximate dimensions and manning capacity of semi-submersible.
• Wind Speeds of up to 220 kph (Hurricane Condition)
o Prevailing Direction (NW)
• Wave conditions up to maximum height of 20 m
• Total topside main deck area of 90 m x 85 m
• Capacity to support up to 4 decks of living area
Additional consideration should be made regarding living quarter location relative to hazard zones, crane
operation and escape routes. Your firm is not expected to include the hazard zones (exterior to the living
areas) or crane configuration in the GA, reference must be made in the report to state compliance with

the relevant industry standards. Significant emphasis will be placed on regulatory compliance for the
living area GA by the client, and successful bids will effectively communicate compliance with
applicable codes for all elements of the design.
All consultation and queries regarding the wishes and requirements of the client are to be communicated
via the MyLO discussion forum dedicated to this topic. This will ensure that all information relevant to
the project is consistently disseminated across all parties.
Design Report
You are required to submit a technical report which documents all the necessary information required
by the client for a successful bid. This document should provide justification for the design decisions
made in the development of the offshore platform GA, particularly regarding applicable design
regulations governing each component of the design. The report will be used as a tool to support the
general arrangement technical drawings provided by the design team. The report must be no longer than
15 pages excluding appendices and follow the formatting guidelines provided in this document.
A suite of general arrangement drawings detailing each deck of the living areas will be provided to the
client. It is expected that these drawings adhere to the Australian Standard AS1100 – Technical Drawing.
In addition to the typical requirements associated with a general arrangement, the client expects to be
provided with:
• Emergency Evacuation Routes
• Fire-Fighting Provisions
• Life-Saving Appliances
Ensure that all relevant dimensions, scale and units are appropriately displayed.
