UK-based steel wire and fibre rope manufacturer Bridon has released two white papers covering wire rope engineering for Offshore Technology.
The first covers the actions and goals of the Bridon International Technical Centre located in Doncaster, which can be accessed here.
The second illustrates the increasing demands that development of deeper water reserves and heavier offshore lifts place on wire rope, and can be accessed here.
Bridon engineers steel wire ropes, cables and synthetic fibre ropes for offshore applications, including:
- Drill lines
- Marine riser tensioners
- Floating production mooring systems
- Fibre MODU tethers
- Steel anchor lines
- Off-take mooring systems including Single Point Moorings (SPMs)
- Crane ropes
- Ultra deep water, low-rotation A&R winch lines
- Low rotation, crush resistant, multistrand ropes for ultra deepwater deployment
