Advanced Monitoring Proves Its Capabilities Offshore

of jacket foundations for wind turbines at the Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm Ltd project in the Moray Firth, Scotland.   The development by the North East-based firm of engineers features remote proximity sensors to confirm the correct engagement of an internal lifting tool (ILT) in use by Seaway Heavy Lifting, a Subsea 7 company.   These are connected to a remote monitoring system providing improved control of the lifting tool and confirming correct engagement. In addition to improved accuracy during lifting, the RED Engineering system delivers offshore time saving advantages for SHL, allowing

New Split Hoist System from Bosch Rexroth

to control the load’s position relative to the seabed. In this way, the system requires only 20 percent of power compared to conventional AHC systems.   The new system was developed and designed fully in-house by Bosch Rexroth, and a first prototype has been built. With the help of Seaway Heavy Lifting, who also showed interest in the concept, the protoype was tested in real life conditions.   “We had to overcome a number of technical and operational challenges for the split hoist system in the two and a half years from concept to construction,” said Patrick Verbakel,

New Subsea Storage Technology Introduced

a subsea liquid storage technology. During the program – a continuation of an earlier engineering study performed on behalf of Statoil Petroleum AS – the storage technology passed a full product qualification test program and will now be applied at a Pile Installation Frame operated by Seaway Heavy Lifting.   The oil and gas industry’s shift toward seabed positioning of (pressure-balanced) equipment like pumps, compressors, and related power grids that can compromise switch gear and power transformers, demands highly reliable, long-term subsea storage of (large volumes of) liquids
