Stress monitoring systems

Published:  03 February, 2014

Strainstall Marine has secured a five-figure order to supply stress monitoring systems for Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries (HSHI) to be fitted aboard a new 405m floating drydock.

The floating drydock hull number S708 is owned by Qatar Petroleum, the State-owned oil company and the monitoring systems are scheduled for installation in February 2014.

The systems to be fitted are Strainstall Marine’s StressAlert HSMS and Torsional monitoring technology, which has been developed using 40 years’ experience of load measurement, strain and stress determination. Hull structural integrity is continuously monitored and displayed, and advanced algorithms contained within StressAlert enable predictions of hull status and deterioration to be determined.

Frank Rose, Strainstall Marine systems engineer commented: “This is the first system of this type that Strainstall has supplied and is the largest floating structure that the StressAlert system is fitted aboard. We are delighted to have won this order especially as we were competing against strong local Korean manufacturers.”
