Greater Production Reliability on Oil Platforms

Bearing damage and gear failures in the propulsion of an oil platform are extreme costly as oil production may have to be stopped completely for the repair work. For this reason it was of great importance for the customer to increase the operational reliability of these crucial elements and to get always detailed information about the condition of the thrusters. Only this knowledge makes it possible to detect damage at an early stage, preventing serious failures and enormous costs. Therefore, the bearing vibrations inside the thruster should be monitored permanently in future with the help of an online monitoring system. Also, the thruster overhaul intervals required by insurance companies were to be extended from currently five years to up to ten years with the help of the condition reports provided by the system.
