Floating Production Systems (FPS) Swivels

FPS Swivels

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.

Moog designs, manufactures and delivers unique Floating Production Systems (FPS) swivels to meet the demanding requirements of offshore operators worldwide.

Typically comprised of electrical slip rings, hydraulic utility swivels and fiber optic rotary joints, swivels are used in a variety of Floating Production Systems (FPS) including buoys, turret moorings and offshore loading towers. Focal's floating production systems 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 Focal floating production system swivels are approved by a marine authority and are certified for use in hazardous locations.
