Top Tensioned Riser Monitoring

BMT provides a system for directly monitoring tension in top tensioned risers that is without parallel in the industry.

Maintenance of the correct top tension ratio in vertical risers is essential for safe operations.

BMT Scientific Marine Services Top-Tensioned Riser Monitoring Systems (TTRMS) use hydraulic cylinders to tension the production risers.  The system consists of a junction box per riser containing pressure transducers, a “string pot,” and hardware to digitize the signals and transmit them to a MIS/MAS console.

Pressure transducers will be integrated into a hazardous area rated junction box to be mounted near each PRT control panel and plumbed into the hydraulic system.
