Half shell chain protection buoys are designed to prevent any damage of the FPSO anchor chain may on the FPSO hull or possible damage on flowlines.
The device is made out of two metallic shells , each of them equipped with buoyancy modules strapped together and assembled around the anchor chain. The product has a tidal monitoring system.
Buoyancy modules are made out of closed cell polyethylen foam, coated with resistant Nibraprène® ES 40D polyurethan elastomer skin ensuring the buoy will not absorb water even if the skin is damaged, increasing the life expectancy of the product and reducing the maintenance costs.
- Unsinkable, even if damaged
- Long life expectancy
- High impact absorption rate
