  • Patent number: 6343893
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an arrangement in a floating drilling and intervention vessel, for controlling a heave compensated drill floor 7 suspended in drill floor compensator cylinders 10. Below the compensated drill floor 7 there is installed a tidal structure (3) suspended in tidal cylinders 2 or wires 25. By adjusting the tidal cylinders 2 or the wires 25 in step with the tide 17 it is achieved that the drill floor compensator cylinders 10 can operate around their middle position regardless of the tide lifting or lowering the vessel 16.
