FPSO Mooring and Tensioning Systems

Factory testing of a compression style chain jack, capable of pulling in 375 tonnes.

Many FPSO platforms rely on a Bardex Mooring and Tensioning System for their safe, efficient, and reliable spread mooring needs. The Bardex system utilizes our pioneering and field proven Linear Chain Jacks Technology to provide the muscle necessary to tension even the largest of chain mooring lines.

The Bardex system is significantly  lighter and has a much smaller equipment footprint compared to a similar  capacity system using chain windlasses. Because maximized deck space and  weight reduction are critical factors in the design of today’s turret moored and spread moored  FPSOs, the Bardex Linear Chain Jack Mooring System has become the  industry standard.
