HiPAP 500 for Ardmore Single Anchor Loading System

Monday, December 15, 2003
Tuscan Energy has awarded Kongsberg Maritime a contract to supply and install a HiPAP 500 system on board the Nomis Shipping vessel, MV Dea Commander. The vessel will operate on the Ardmore Field in conjunction with two Single Anchor Loading (SAL) systems. These will be used to transfer oil to shuttle tankers using a flexible seabed riser. This loading system comprises an anchor point on the seabed where the loading risers and mooring lines are terminated into interconnected swivel systems. The Dea Commander will be responsible for orientating the subsea loading riser prior to connection to the tanker. It used the HiPAP system with subsea gyro transponders mounted on the swivel point. Once connected, the tanker is able to weather vane freely during loading, and the Dea Commander monitors the correct orientation of the flexible seabed riser during the whole operation.
