ABU DHABI, UAE BMT has delivered a mooring line monitoring (MLM) system to London Marine Consultants (LMC) for the FPSO Helang project in Malaysia.

The system will monitor mooring pull-in and inclination of the seven chain stoppers during the FPSO hook-up installation phases and long-term operation of its internal turret mooring system (TMS) on the FPSO Helang.

Dale Hastings-Payne, BMT’s Director of Business Development, Asia, said: “The Helang’s internal turret is integrated into the FPSO’s hull enabling the FPSO to passively weathervane while permanently moored to the seafloor, so our inclination data is essential to indicate the leaving angles for each of the mooring line chain stoppers.”

The MLM will indicate the leaving angles for each of the mooring line chain stoppers. It includes seven subsea inclinometer sensors that transfer data which can be accessed on a local tablet readout and an ICSS (integrated control and safety system) at the client’s FPSO control room.
