English term or phrase: semi-submersible platform
Offshore oil & gas projects for the likes of XXX range from 300-750kgs of YYY for small projects and large projects being 5000kgs. This said, it is anticipated that for a large ***semi submersible platform*** the requirement could be nearer 10000kgs of YYY material.

I know what they mean, but just can't think of the correct translation.
