Fairleaders h


Our fairleaders are designed to withstand breaking loads from 860 to 1000 tonnes and conform to DNV-OS-E301 standard. Each is built and fitted to fine tolerances.

Guiding Giants: Whittaker's Ingenious Fairleaders.

Fairleaders are immensely strong, heavy assemblies which help manage the chains linking FPSO turrets to the seabed. Despite their size and weight - around 15 Te each - they must turn smoothly and consistently under massive stress. This requires great care and precision in handling the bearings in our factory, and each must be built and fitted to fine tolerances.
