Continuing the discussion from "spar type" offshore platforms | flip ship |:
1000m depth rating possible for spheres, 500m for tubular concrete structures
…the (study) results demonstrated the feasibility of near neutrally buoyant concrete structures, having an overall safety factor of three, at depths to 3000 feet for spheres and 1500 feet for cylinders. Greater depths are possible if concretes having a compressive strenght greater than 10.000 psi are used or if negativly buoyant structures are designed.

The hydrostatic load in a sphere distributes equally and keeps the thrust line in the center of the wall what increases the overall strength.
