Fast track Middle East drilling riser tension system supply


Signed, sealed and delivered…

Claxton carried out detailed design work and manufactured and delivered the first drilling riser tension system, comprising tension cylinders, tension ring, ATEX-approved hydraulic power unit and a pipe centralizer, in just six weeks, about half the normal time for such an order. The second system was not required within such a tight timescale, but it was still delivered in about nine weeks. Will Robinson summed up the team’s achieved in keeping to our client’s challenging schedule:

“The project illustrates perfectly what Claxton is all about. The rig builder came to us with an enquiry that required a tailored solution that had to be supplied against the sort of timescales more associated with an off-the-shelf order. We are proud of our ability to take these combined technical and schedule challenges in our stride.”
