S.E.A. Atlas™ Bottom Tendon Connector – reliable installation, simple retrieval
Deepwater developments are exposed to extreme conditions. The S.E.A. Atlas™ Bottom Tendon Connector (BTC) is designed for use on Tension Leg Platforms (TLPs) deployed in regions such as the Gulf of Mexico, West Africa and the North Sea. A critical component of our tendon connection solution, it has been designed to provide a secure connection to the subsea pile and is qualified to withstand 12 million lbs of tension and 2 million lbs of compression, throughout the TLP’s lifecycle.
The S.E.A.Atlas™ BTC features a revolutionary, robust locking technology for the harshest subsea conditions. Subjected to a DNV.GL-witnessed, full-scale qualification program, it installs with ease. Its reassuring breech-style connection is designed to prevent disconnection in both tension and compression scenarios – making it the connector of choice for safety, strength and reliability.
