Stinger Helix

Late life application

The Ceaser is a pipelaying vessel from the company Helix Energy Solutions. In 2006 KCI performed the concept and detailed engineering of the stinger that supports the pipeline during the pipe-laying operation. The stinger is supported by a hang-off frame and is equipped with an uplift compensation system that is also designed by KCI.

The length of the stinger is 92 m and has a minimum bending radius of 70 m and a maximum bending radius of 300 m. The stinger weighs approximately 950 mT.
