Mooring Tension Monitoring
SENSFIB FPSO system can be extended with a mooring tension
display for moored offshore structures. The graphical
display (GUI) shows the present position and bearing of the
structure/hull relative to the ideal position and bearing,
as well as the current tension or load on the mooring lines.
The Mooring Monitoring package also provides functions for
evaluating mooring line integrity, and may be combined with
the Active Fatigue Management package to
calculate fatigue in the mooring structures.
By monitoring the stress responses in the hull structure
during operations we can provide the navigators with real
time information about the load margins ‑ and provide
support for the decision-making. The same data will be
stored and analyzed, and will give valuable input for
maintenance planning and fleet utilization.
The same data can be post-processed to give valuable input to
maintenance planning and fleet utilization. Light Structures
delivers a range of different monitoring configurations.
Entry-level systems monitor hull girder loading with four to
six sensors placed on the longitudinals. More comprehensive
solutions include slamming detection and fatigue monitoring
with dedicated sensors in the waterlines. For advanced hulls
such as high-speed ferries and naval vessels, we offer
tailor-made solutions with a virtually unlimited number of
stress sensors. SENSFIB offers a complete suite of hull
condition monitoring and decision support functions. All
sectors of the shipping industry, offshore, navy and wind
energy benefit from the guidance of the monitoring system.
Current SENSFIB system installations include navy and coast
guard vessels, large container and RoRo vessels, bulk
carriers, shuttle tankers, FPSO's, VLCCs, LNGCs and floaters
in the offshore segment.
