What's New

Whittaker have designed and manufactured new Gypsies and Fairleaders for the Gryphon 'A' FPSO to DNV-OS-E301 Class Specifications. The units are manufactured from DNV NV-690 high strength structural steel and are designed to withstand the breaking load of the R5 mooring chains even if the load is applied at an off-angle as a result of friction in the fairlead bearings. Previous designs have not properly accounted for this.
