Calif. 3 Guyed Tower A guyed tower is a slender structure made up of truss members, which rests on the ocean floor and is held in place by a symmetric array of catenary guylines. A guyed tower may be applicable in deep hostile waters where the loads on the gravity base or jacket-type structures from the environment are prohibitively high. The guylines typically have several segments.

Three additional Spars have been built by J. Ray McDermott. The first three production Spars consisted of a long cylindrical outer shell with “hard tanks” near the top to provide buoyancy. 16 Progression of Spars (Technip Offshore) the lower section consisted of “soft tanks” which were only used to allow horizontal flotation of the Spar during installation, and for holding fixed ballast, if necessary. Subsequent Spars replaced the middle section with a truss structure to reduce weight and cost, and to reduce current drag.
