Subsea Mooring Swivels

Subsea Mooring Swivels

Subsea Mooring Swivels are used to tether sub-surface mooring buoys on certain types of FPSOs.

The swivels are subjected to continuous variable loads over the many years between re-builds.

The selection of structural materials, bearings and cathodic protection is most critical to avoid failure in the field.

These swivels have been working continuously in the northern North Sea for many years.
