Gryphon Alpha FPSO Connection
Location: UK North Sea
Objective: Monitor 3D Catenaries with Extremely Tight Tolerances
Solution: Delmar used the Starfix.Moor program, in partnership with FugroChance, to closely monitor reconnection of the Gryphon Alpha FPSO mooring lines
Summary: Delmar Systems, Inc. was awarded the 3D field real-time modeling of the Gryphon Alpha’s mooring lines during reconnection in a heavily congested field
More Detailed Scope of Work:
Delmar Systems, Inc. provided real-time 3D monitoring of the Gryphon Alpha’s mooring lines during reconnection of the system. The reconnection was challenging due to the extremely tight installation tolerances around mid-water arches and other subsea assets.
Using real-time vessel positioning data while closely monitoring line payouts, mooring lines visuals displayed were found to be within mere feet of actual surveyed positioning. 3D asset clearance was provided continually in real time during the entire installation process, so that reconnection occurred safely and efficiently with no contact between the mooring lines and assets.
