Strainstall’s Chain Tension Monitoring System for Kaombo

Strainstall, part of James Fisher and Sons plc, has secured a contract with Bluewater Energy Services (Bluewater) for the provision of Chain Tension Monitoring System.

Bluewater selected Strainstall’s monitoring solution to ensure the integrity of the turret mooring systems on two FPSO vessels in the Kaombo deep water oil field. The CTMS systems will provide increased operational efficiency and cost reduction through the delivery of a long-term monitoring system that incorporates fully sealed, bespoke sensors lasting over 20 years, the company said in a press release.

“Strainstall’s CTMS system was selected as it suited Bluewater’s requirements for a simple and easy to install solution to monitor the integrity of the mooring chains for the two Kaombo FPSO’s,” explained Evert Han Huernink, project manager at Bluewater Energy Services BV.

“This win is an excellent development in Strainstall’s on-going relationship with Bluewater for the provision of load monitoring solutions,” said Simon Everett, managing director of Strainstall. “We’re extremely pleased with the opportunity to deliver our advanced mooring monitoring system, which has been proven on a number of Total’s offshore platforms previously.”

The system will provide real-time data to operators, giving an accurate indication of mooring loads to ensure they are not overloaded and stay within safe limits.
