Based on the quality of our manufacturing and commissioning Finesse were subsequently awarded a further three contracts to outfit the remaining Subsea 7 flagship pipelay vessels the Seven Rio, Seven Sun and Seven Cruzerio.
FCS also provided additional hardware in the form of a drive panel and control system to control the on-board 15Te Overbender Track Tensioner on all 4 vessels. The system employs an S7-300FH PLC which controls the hydraulic system to provide the required 'squeeze' on the product and a Siemens S120 drive system which provides track movement and control. The Tensioner is controlled via a local control panel mounted on the tensioner or again wirelessly via a Cavotec WAB system.
