David Blake steps up to assist the Captain FPSO

April 06, 2021 | Written by: Sensia


We pride ourselves on the flexibility and all-round expertise of our people. So, when a last-minute medical issue meant a specialist engineer was unable to carry out important intervention work on the Captain FPSO – we knew the right person would step up to the plate. That person was David Blake.
Operated by Ithaca Energy, the Captain FPSO had scheduled Sensia to provide expert support during the change out of the turret mooring tensioners. The scope also included modifications to the eight mooring monitoring system PLCs – plus various healthcare and fault-finding tasks across the associated systems and sensors. Specialist work, for expert engineers.
With limited time to prepare – David Blake stepped up to meet our commitment to the customer. From intensive self-educating to familiarize himself with the system before embarking, to flawless execution of the planned scope, David delivered. Even going above and beyond to find and resolve an additional issue with the mooring leg tension. A timely intervention that saved the customer considerable costs.
David is the perfect example of our agile-specialist approach – leveraging all of his skills and experience to overcome customer challenges one-by-one. Maintaining the outstanding reputation of our field support team in the process.
