ECA Helps Monitor Risers Connection on FPSO in Angola

ECA Group has been awarded a contract to supply a riser connection monitoring system to a private operator for oil & gas and nuclear activities in Angola.

On an offshore FPSO (floating production storage and offloading unit), the flexible risers are connected to the vessel by means of a bend stiffener fixation system (BSF) which requires an on-going monitoring.

ECA Group has been granted a contract to provide an underwater network composed of eleven DTR65 HRC swiveling TV cameras, and two pressurized explosion proof VSR1X0Z-Z2 control units to a private operator specialized in harsh environment inspection.

This solution was developed few years ago for an FPSO based in Brazil. Developed by ECA Group, the solution for offshore oil and gas industry is completely remote controlled and does not require any diver intervention. Installation and removal of cameras are operated by a ROV. The network, installed on the FPSO, will allow a real time, night and day surveillance of the clamping process of risers.
