At Whittaker we design and manufacture fairleaders and gypsies in full accordance with DNV-OS-E301. We believe that on an FPSO the fairleaders should be able to withstand chain MBL, while seized, until the turret breaks out.
Whittaker design and manufacture turret turning grippers for Tentech designed FPSOs, with all three FPSOs of this type in the British sector of the North Sea using our grippers. Our design offers a number of significant advantages over alternative designs resulting in extremely reliable and long-lasting products requiring comparatively little maintenance.
FPSO turret bearings present a number of known and predictable problems which can result in serious damage to bearing pistes, including bearing pads becoming detached in bad weather, ineffective greasing and oil leaks. At Whittaker we’ve developed proven, tested solutions to all these design problems.
