Solutions: Barge/Rig Mooring

Rugged Controls provides winch control and monitoring solutions for measuring line tension, payout and speed in single or multi-point rig mooring applications.

Our mooring systems are utilized in every oil patch around the world...North Sea, Gulf of Mexico, SE Asia, West Africa, & UAE.

In a typical mooring installation, tensiometers (available from 0-500 tons) are installed on the mooring lines originating from each single or double-drum winch. Tensiometers interface to one LCI-90i Standard or Multi-winch display (the LCI-90i Multi-Winch display can view 4 winches at one time) providing local line parameter viewing and, if desired, simultaneous data transmission to remote displays or a centrally located PC computer. Alternatively, LCI displays can interface to existing instrumented sheave sensors.
