Abstract : For the purposes of this investigation an ocean construction platform has been defined as any available platform that is either designed for or may be readily adapted for the performance of an ocean construction task. Additionally, ocean construction is defined as the construction, installation, maintenance, repair, or recovery of any fixed or moored ocean facility. These broad definitions cover an extremely wide range of vessels and therefore some further breakdown or classification is needed for two reasons. First, the kinds of platforms to be considered need to be identified in order to point the way to specific sources of information. Second, the type of information required will vary depending on upon the intended use of a specific platform.
