Offshore oil and gas - floating production and drilling units

 Floating production and drilling units

TLPs, Semisubmersibles, Spars, FPSOs.

Structural components

Vulcan SFM designs and manufactures structural insert castings for use in highly stressed areas of the hull and has worked with major contractors on the structurally critical tendon porches used in numerous TLPs including Magnolia and Kizomba.

Riser systems

Stress joints, keel joints and transition joints.

With the need to go deeper, Vulcan SFM’s capability to supply very long, one piece joints is key to reducing the risk of failure which increases when welding multiple smaller lengths.

Riser Joints can be manufactured to a maximum length of 58 feet (17.7 metres).

Mooring systems

Sheffield Forgemasters International produces high-strength mooring components for securing floating platforms.

These are safety-critical components manufactured to exacting standards.

Vulcan SFM has designed and supplied cast pad-eyes for attaching the moorings of floating structures to suction and driven piles globally.

High integrity forged connectors using a bespoke F22 grade material are increasingly used within FPSO mooring systems.

Tendon systems

Vulcan SFM produces cast mooring components which secure TLPs in some of the most severe deepwater locations and has supplied significant numbers of cast Roto-Latch connectors to Oilstates Industries for attaching the tendon to the pile.

Vulcan SFM supplies high integrity forged length adjustment joints and also specialises in manufacturing cast tendon porches.
