Slewing bearings in oil and gas conveying technology

Oil and gas conveying technology

thyssenkrupp rothe erde produces special slewing bearings with enormous diameters of up to 18 metres for the oil conveying industry’s mobile production, storage and loading units. These bearings are manufactured partially segmented. They connect oil tankers with the deposits. A turret is mounted on the inside, through which pipes are directed from the ship to multiple oil sources on the seabed. Thus, the conveying pipes do not even turn when changing position.
