Wärtsilä Hamworthy Rig Tensioning Compressors

Our rig tensioning compressors and heave compensation compressor packages are fully integrated, lightweight, compact and engineered for the offshore environment.

The combination of a 4 stage compressor, dryer, and filtration package with a contained cooling system, produces filtered and dry, high pressure air or gas suitable for riser tensioning and other offshore applications. The packages are designed to ensure that upgrades, refurbishment, and servicing can be easily carried out.

We also offer high pressure nitrogen booster compressors, along with nitrogen generation systems, for riser tensioning, motion compensation, drill stream compensation and other applications.

These units can be supplied as integrated packages, fully assembled, tested and ready for installation. The module also meets the requirements of the major marine classification societies.
