Bowtech Delivers Chain Stopper Monitoring System for Quad 204 FPSO

Bowtech Products Ltd, a global market leader in subsea vision systems, today announced that it has delivered a £100,000 Chain Stopper Monitoring System to SBM Offshore, to monitor the chain stoppers during installation of the BP Quad 204 Turret Mooring System (TMS).

The new system will allow visual monitoring of each chain stopper ratchet, when the chains are being tensioned during the installation phase of the TMS. There are a total of 20 chain stoppers which require monitoring during this phase, located on the chaintable, on the lower turret, around 15 metres below sea level.

The scope of supply for the subsea system includes high resolution, high sensitivity monochrome cameras, together with LED lights (for use during poor ambient conditions), which will be installed onto the I-tubes, located above the chain stoppers, allowing downward viewing of the installation operations.

For the topside system, the scope includes a video inspection and control system, for viewing and controlling the cameras and LED lights. Bowtech Products also supplied all the associated cables, connectors and brackets.

Mike Winstanley, Sales and Marketing Director said: “We are delighted to work again with both BP and SBM Offshore on this highly prestigious project. This new system is one of several visual asset inspection and monitoring solutions Bowtech Products can supply to the offshore oil and gas industry.”
