Techno Fysica BV (Netherlands) - Techno Fysica BV, a global load monitoring solution provider, has been awarded the design, manufacturing and completion of the vessel-specific load measurements for Allseas’ heavy lift and pipelay vessel Pioneering Spirit.
At Techno Fysica’s Centre for Measurement Techniques, based in The Netherlands, they designed various customized load measurement solutions which include 51.5 MN capacity shear pin type load cells for the lever pivots of the vessel’s topsides lift system (TLS), as well as structural stress in the hull connection beam, the stinger hang-off supports and the rollerbox forces during pipelaying.
The final deliveries Techno Fysica made for the TLS comprised no less than 18 large forged shaft pieces, each weighing 8 tonnes, for the so-called yoke foundation supports and adapter box.
Techno Fysica also took care of calibration of all load monitoring sensors and systems.
Techno Fysica always endeavor to meet the required delivery ‘no matter how challenging’. TF technical support is 24/7 available. In the unlikely event of a problem, advice, spares, service or a replacement unit is available at short notice.
