Motion Compensation Systems

Rigrun Europe Ltd is a major refurbisher and distributer of motion compensation systems.  Motion compensation systems are devices used on floating drilling rig to provide a near constant upward force independent of the movement of the vessel. When the vessel is heaving and rolling due to waves, and wind, motion compensation systems work as a pre-tensioner spring and keep equipment taut and prevent it from buckling under its own weight. These tensioner systems are based upon the hydro-pneumatic principle using pressurised gas as the energy absorbing medium and hydraulic fluid as the transmission mechanism.
