We have been designing, manufacturing and assembling slip rings for FPSO applications since 1992. The first slip ring we produced for this application was the TX4790, which was ordered in July 1992.
The unit was certified to ATEX Standards by Baseefa in February 1993, and conformed to the requirements of EN 50 014 (1977), EN 50 018 (1977) and EN 50 019 (1977).
Today, we continue to design and manufacture a range of units to suit these applications. Now, they are typically built using electrical slip rings combined with fibre optic rotary joints, providing uninterrupted delivery of electrical power and signals, alongside fibre optic signals, in hazardous areas.
