VTT Buoy

Vertical Tensioned Tether

The Vertical Tensioned Tether system is our original concept and uses the VTT arrangement to give high rotational stability and therefore does not need active trimming and ballasting of the floating structure.

The historical tension arrangement, like in most other TLP structures is limited in the minimum water depth by the wave height.

In combination with the subsea storage tank the arrangement provides a simple, low seabed footprint facility, which can be located close to a Drill Centre, whether as a production system or a well control and fluids conditioning facility.
