Tritech announced it has been awarded a contract for its real-time riser and mooring line monitoring system RAMS.

Following a competitive and detailed bidding process, Tritech has been selected by Single Buoy Moorings Inc. (SBM), designer and supplier of Turret Mooring Systems (TMS), to supply the primary safety tool for real-time mooring line failure detection and riser monitoring for the new build Floating Production Storage and Offloading Unit (FPSO), for the BP Quad 204 development.

The RAMS technology will provide 24/7 real-time simultaneous monitoring of the presence and precise position of all subsea targets beneath the FPSO. Tritech is to supply a full hardware and software solution to comply with detailed project specification, including DNV high availability and redundancy requirements. In addition to the software’s ability to assign user-defined alarms for early warning failure detections, data gathered from the RAMS system’s continuous real-time monitoring will be analyzed for asset fatigue studies.

The RAMS system will be safely deployed through dedicated deployment chutes in the FPSO turret, following its anchoring approximately 161km (100mi) off the West Coast of Shetland, in a water depth of 350-450m. Tritech has contracted Subsea 7 IAS team to design, develop and supply the deployment system.
