Many offshore production facilities suffer from piping failures and machine downtime due to excessive vibration.
These reliability/integrity issues have serious consequences such as gas or fluid release, potential fire/explosions, loss of life, environmental damage, equipment replacement/loss of use, and high maintenance costs.
Structural vibration occurs when dynamic forces generated by compressors, pumps, and engines cause the deck beams to vibrate. This vibration leads to piping failures, poor equipment reliability, and safety concerns. read more
