Exploration Goes Deeper

The search for new oil and gas reserves has continually forced offshore exploration companies to drill in deeper water. Under these conditions, water depth and harsh weather heavily influence which type of installation to use.

Unique Integrated Swivels

We design, manufacture and deliver unique Floating Production System swivels to meet the demanding requirements of offshore operators worldwide. Typically comprised of Electrical Slip Rings, Toroidal Fluid Swivel and Fiber Optic Rotary Joints, swivels are used in a variety of Floating Production Systems (FPS) including buoys, turret moorings and offshore loading towers. 

FocalTM FPS swivels permit the continuous delivery of electrical power and signals, hydraulic fluids, and fiber optic signals, with unlimited freedom of the vessel to weathervane about its mooring point. All FPS swivels are approved by a marine authority and are certified for use in hazardous locations.
