3985 SEDCO 712 TOWING SYSTEM VERIFICATION SURVEY HEADCAM VIDEO

Standard survey video walk around pontoon top of the Forward and Aft Ends of Sedco 712 in way of both the Main Tow and Emergency Tow SMIT Bracket pad eyes, and closed chocks, was captured for subsequent briefing with project team for reverse engineering to establish the SWL of the Main tow and emergency Tow systems. This walk around shows the existing SMIT Padeye layouts and chain through the corresponding closed Chocks, above deck scantlings and thruster pads near the towing system components. The video footage can then be used by the project team to confirm existing as built state for reverse engineering, FEA model/analysis, establish strengthening proposals with clash free functional layout should it be deemed necessary.
