Kongsberg Maritime has awarded Head Energy Multicontrol contracts for development, installation and operation of fatigue measurement systems on four semi-submersible drilling rigs.

Head Energy Multicontrol delivers electronics and software for fatigue measurements on subsea installations on four semi-submersible drilling units where Kongsberg Maritime supplies complete RMS-systems (Riser Management Systems).

The fatigue measurement system supplied by Head Energy Multicontrol collects information from the subsea instruments and sensors and transmits data directly to topside software and displays for immediate analysis of stress, strain and movements in solid structures and risers. Continuous monitoring and measurement enable operators to optimize positioning and maintenance scheduling, improve safety and substantially reduce time and cost.

-Demand for these systems is escalating. The solutions are essentially standardized, are robust and reliable, also in harsh environments and deep water. We receive great feedback on our systems currently in operation. Through our partnership with Kongsberg Maritime, we can deliver world-wide, and on short notice, says Managing Director of Head Energy Multicontrol, Trond Erik Gundersen.
