The offshore crude oil export operation is a large-scale operation with high risk and long time span. During the entire operation process from the berthing of the 10,000-ton-class oil tanker, the pumping of the oil tanker, and the unmooring and unberthing of the oil tanker, the FPSO mooring tension load is related to the safety of the entire operation.
The distance between the tanker and the FPSO
The tension between the lift tanker and the FPSO
In the past, the tension of the cable & the distance between the oil tanker and the FPSO & the real-time data was monitored by personal and reported to the captain of the oil tanker. The single and backward means of communication is the biggest safety hazard when lifting oil.
In order to avoid the above risks, Weite provides CNOOC with Mooring System & Tension Load Monitoring System for monitoring the tension of large cables, which improves the safety and reliability of oil extraction.
Overview of real-time monitoring of cable tension
(FPSO stern outbound operation area)
In order to realize the real-time monitoring of the cable tension, the system places the mobile terminal on the oil tanker, and realizes the real-time monitoring of the cable tension and the ship's bow through wireless transmission technology. The mooring captain and ship operator can observe the cable tension and the ship's bow through the mobile terminal. To observe the dynamic of the cable and the orientation of the FPSO ship in real time, at the same time, when the cable tension and compass data are not within the set safety threshold, an alarm will be issued, and the data will be recorded and displayed in real time.
During the construction period, the engineers overcame the impact of the epidemic and completed the installation and commissioning tasks on time and with high quality in strict accordance with the epidemic management policy of the operation area.

After the completion, the Weite engineer was ready to take a helicopter to return to the land. The person in charge of the site was still thanking the Weite engineer when he said goodbye and gave feedback: The interface of the tension load safety monitoring system is clearly displayed, and the parameters are displayed at a glance. Your system can monitor the pulling force and the heading of the ship in real time, and give our staff an early warning or alarm in a timely manner, which makes us more confident in the crude oil export operation.
Since 2011, Weite has become a qualified supplier of CNOOC, after replacing German products and services. It has been deeply involved in the field of crane safety, and its products serve 217 offshore drilling platforms in the Bohai Sea, Yellow Sea, East China Sea, and South China Sea. From the simple offshore crane load moment indicator system, to the customized Mooring System & Tension Load Monitoring System, we can provide the best solutions to meet different needs. The affirmation of the majority of customers shows the craftsman spirit of Weite's continuous pioneering and innovation in the field of lifting safety.
