A permanently moored Floating Production Unit has a complex mooring system with many constraints. A wide variety of factors must be considered to try to predict the future and account for degradation of the system.

Our work with the pan-industry FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading) Forum has been focused on mooring integrity and the management of mooring systems. A decade ago, we were a founding member of the FPSO committee that worked toward setting guidelines related to mooring: since then, these guidelines have been adopted by UK Oil and Gas, and is being applied around the world by operators.

On a project in a West African river delta, Welaptega proved the value of our insight and technology to a major oil company dealing with what appeared to be an incredibly high amount of corrosion on their mooring system. Welaptega CEO Tony Hall explains exactly what happened when we turned up on the job.

When it comes to mooring inspections of offshore floating production installations, Welaptega is at the top of its class. This is the result of more than 20 years of experience performing inspections and assessments in every corner of the globe as well as a relentless commitment to continuous improvement of its knowledge base, execution, and R&D. Many of the inspections performed by Welaptega are carried out to meet the requirements of various classifications societies such as Lloyd's Register and DNV-GL.

Meet Govinda “G” Jagdeo. G is the newest member of the Welaptega Team and was hired on to fulfill the role of project engineer. He has been with us for just under two months now and his outgoing, optimistic and “can-do” attitude makes him a great addition to our team. Govinda is now offshore Australia working on one of our projects, but before he left we sat down with him to learn a bit more about who is really behind the man we call “G”.

Mechanical systems tests were re-verified, in-water tests were performed without a hitch, and data was produced as expected; without exception, this day of testing was a very positive and crucial step in preparing this revolutionary technology for commercial use. We are excited to prove the system in the upcoming months and showcase the full offshore inspection capability of SAMIR.

SAMIR (Semi-Autonomous Mooring Inspection Robot) testing is continuing with excellent results so far; we are getting the system ready for the offshore trial scheduled later this year.

There is a certain buzz in the air here at Welaptega. Once the snow begins to melt, and the trees begin to bud, it officially becomes motorcycle season. It is a hobby that many of our staff members enjoy - especially one of our Design Engineers, Jordan Braun. While attending a brewery tour sponsored by Engineers Nova Scotia, Jordan found himself in a conversation with two like-minded beer drinkers, Jeff Shaw and Daryl Stewart.

We completed the prototype subsea sensor system earlier this year and in-air testing is well underway! The test bed is set up with samples to test data collection and deployment. SAMIR will be mounted onto and travel along the test pieces, collecting data as it goes. Once post-processed, the data will allow us to quantitatively evaluate the condition of the test pieces and demonstrate SAMIR’s capability
