WATTS System

Design and manufacture of bespoke Wellhead Alignment and Torque Transfer System

The Challenge:

Our client engaged us to first develop a concept, followed by detailed design and manufacture of an alternative, more cost-effective solution to a conventional OEM deflector base while maintaining or enhancing the same wellhead alignment and fishing gear torque transfer capabilities.

What We Did:

Astrimar developed a highly innovative, initial concept in the form of a Wellhead Alignment and Torque Transfer System (WATTS), to effectively replace a conventional deflector base. By uniquely decoupling its required functions, we designed independent solutions to address each function.  This resulted in a system that provides improved tolerance stack up and alignment, effective torque transfer, reduces manufacturing costs and simplifies installation. Astrimar’s scope included conceptual and detailed engineering, engineering analysis, technical risk assurance, including FMECA, manufacture management and test program development
