Integrity Monitoring System for FPSOs

Tritech’s RAMS® is a 360° anchor-chain and riser integrity monitoring system for Floating Production Storage and Offloading Units (FPSOs).

RAMS® is a dual-function system monitoring the presence, integrity and position of mooring lines and risers 24/7 from a single sonar head * deployed beneath the vessel providing full Asset Integrity Management.

Deployed through the FPSO turret, the RAMS®sonar provides simultaneous real-time feedback on the status of all lines.

RAMS® incorporates a unique Beam Steerable Transmitter that allows the system to be configured on installation to ensure the optimum sonar return from the mooring lines and risers and to provide 100% target detection and reliability.

Unlike other mooring line monitoring systems, the Tritech RAMS® technology is suitable for long-term deployment capability as it has no mechanical moving parts.

Continuous data recording allows for detailed data export for offline trend analysis.

* Additional sonar heads may be required to see all targets depending on diameter and configuration of turret.
