Upgrade Vessel

The Challenge

To upgrade existing assets within the Caspian Sea to carry out more complex field development activities, laying a range of different products in deeper waters at higher tensions and with a range of coating constraints.

The Solution

Reconfigure the layout of the firing line to create an additional coating station aft of the tensioners. To maximise efficiency when coating parameters weren’t a constraint the tensioners were mounted on a drive system allowing their position in the firing line to be altered.

The Outcome

The successful development of a solution which accounted for the contrasting requirements of three different products.
