Deep Sea Mooring, Moorland & Vryhof
With the complexity and remoteness of offshore developments and the need to manage costs yet adhere to safety and asset integrity, Global Maritime is meeting customer challenges through a total mooring solution. Global Maritime Vryhof is a developer and provider of offshore anchoring technology. Global Maritime Vryhof’s expertise is complimented by that of its sister companies, Global Maritime Mooring Group s.a. Deep Sea Mooring and Moorlink. This allows the company to offer customers a full engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) package from design and installation through to hook-up of the complete mooring system. Global Maritime recently put this total mooring proposition to the test on the semisubmersible drilling unit Ocean Monarch with the operator Woodside. The total solution consisted of eight 1,750-meter mooring lines and four storm mooring lines to ensure stability during the cyclone season; high-strength Moorlink swivels used to relieve the twist and torque that builds up in the mooring line; and mK5 Stevshark anchors. Deep Sea Mooring’s Advanced Distance and Positioning System ADAPS and Device Tracking and Control Systems DTAC were also used. This is just one example of how Global Maritime is adding value to mooring operations worldwide with other recent contracts taking place with Det Norske, Quadrant, Transocean, Statoil and more.
Global Maritime Deep Sea Mooring offers a comprehensive portfolio of offshore mooring services, including the rental of cutting-edge mooring equipment, complete pre-lay and rig move mooring solutions, marine engineering, and a broad range of ancillary services. Equipment is marked with the company’s patented RFID technology that allows for fully traceable logistics, usage and service history. Everything is also linked to Global Maritime’s unique E-Yard and Rig Manager software. Global Maritime Vryhof is the world’s leading developer and supplier of offshore anchoring technology. It provides mobile mooring, permanent mooring, and installation mooring solutions to the offshore oil and gas, dredging, and marine renewable energy industries. Global Maritime Vryhof recently introduced its virtual reality moorings experience where - through virtual reality glasses – people are able to walk on the seabed and inspect the moorings of different kinds of floaters. Global Maritime Moorlink designs, produces, and installs certified swivel links, connections, and wire clamps for use on any chain, wire, or rope. The company’s expertise enables us to provide safe and flexible mooring solutions adapted to specific requirements.
