Athena Update

Petrex Developments, the trusted, leading Subsea Engineering and Project Management Company have an experienced crew on their way, today, to the Central North Sea to perform the annual inspection of the BW Athena Lazy-S Flexible Riser System, the FPSO Mooring System for North Sea Operator Ithaca Energy with added scope for a comprehensive hull survey.


The BW Athena Lazy-S Flexible Riser System consists of three flexible risers, two dynamic umbilicals, a dual tank mid-water arch with associated tethers and MWA base. The inspection involves cleaning, general visual inspection (GVI), close visual inspection (CVI) and taking cathodic protection measurements on the riser system and ancillary equipment. A similar scope of work will be carried out on the nine leg FPSO Mooring System, suction anchor, mooring chain, ball grab assembly, wire sections and STP buoy connectors.
