Aquatic’s Dual Tensioner for Atoll Umbilical Setup Off Egypt

Aquatic has been selected to provide tensioning capabilities to DeepOcean on behalf of Subsea 7 for the Pharaonic Petroleum Company’s Atoll Main umbilical installation project in Egypt.

Aquatic said it will provide its dual tensioner system solution to tension the umbilical during installation.

Martin Charles, managing director, Aquatic, said: “We are proud to be associated with this important project. Since its design and implementation, this dual tensioner configuration has operated successfully on numerous projects globally. Our team will work closely with our clients to customize our equipment on deck and adapt the dual tensioner solution to the project’s requirements.”

The 112-kilometers umbilical will be installed at a water depth of 923 meters, extending to a beach tie-in at the West Harbour Terminal, near Port Said, Egypt.

Mobilization is scheduled for August 2017 from Blyth Northumberland, with an anticipated project duration of 70 days.

The tensioning system will be installed aboard DeepOcean’s Maersk Connector vessel. The tensioners will be integrated to allow them to be operated in synchronisation with existing deck equipment, including the vessel carousel. The tensioner control cabin will be linked to the existing vessel carousel control room to allow all the equipment to be controlled and monitored from a single location by Aquatic personnel. The dual tensioner solution connects two 50Te tensioners together in series to ensure sufficient track length to the umbilical, Aquatic explained.
