Conductor Tensioning Systems
ICON’s Conductor Tensioners are designed to support all standard size drilling conductors from 9 3/8” to 36” when deployed from a dedicated tension deck on a jackup drilling rig.
Constantly applied tension prevents conductor buckling, controls lateral deflection and helps reduce vortex induced vibration under wave and current loading. This allows much smaller conductor sizes to be used.

The ICON Conductor Tensioner allows the conductor support to move vertically whilst maintaining the nominally pre-set tension. It also provides the necessary lateral support to the top of the conductor.
