Here are the RMRS Rules released to cover the classification, construction and equipment of MODU/FOP, both non-self-propelled and self-propelled, drillships and any kind of floating platforms. The technical requirements contained in this publication shall apply to all machinery that is installed on board such offshore units, all devices, apparatuses and other equipment, whose normal operating conditions would ensure the required level of safety of the unit/platform as a whole in all operating modes. All drilling/production equipment and technical solutions related to the safely of drilling and well operations, shall conform with the requirements of state bodies engaged in safety supervision in the offshore industry. The Rulebook has been divided into twenty parts. The first part describes the basics of classification - classes of mobile units, applicable notations, surveys, technical documentation, etc. The second part deals with the hull and describes principles of the structural design, platform-specific strength issues, stability of jack-ups on the seabed etc. The third part covers the equipment, arrangements and outfitting of the offshore units including rudder and steering gear, where applicable, position keeping systems and their components, jacking system, emergency outfit, lifting devices, closing devices etc. The next two parts address the stability and subdivision, including general requirements, stability criteria and damage trim and stability. Then there is a chapter on structural fire protection, fire detection, alarm and extinguishing systems and equipment and systems. This part is followed by the machinery and associated installations - here you will find the requirements to the main and auxiliary machinery including gas turbines, deck machinery, hydraulic drives etc...
