With FPSO vessels becoming an increasingly cost-effective way to produce, store and offload oil from deepwater locations, operators need to trust that their permanent mooring ropes are strong and durable enough to provide safe station keeping at sea.
Vessels operating in deepwater locations over long periods need mooring ropes that are strong and durable enough to provide stability in difficult environments. Today, more and more offshore operators are switching from polyester ropes to ropes made with Dyneema® DM20 to secure their FPSO vessels. Ropes with Dyneema® have a 30% smaller diameter than polyester ropes, offering more freedom in riser design, planning and installation.
Dyneema® DM20 is engineered to overcome creep fatigue and cut operational costs
It has the strength and creep performance to moor the biggest FPSOs
70% lighter than equivalent polyester rope for easier handling and faster, more cost-effective operations
Take a look at our case studies to see how lifting slings made with Dyneema® proved to be very safe, reliable, and durable in the most demanding lifting operations.
“The idea was to use two winches, fore and aft, to pull and tension 12 mooring lines each. This design would replace the usual chain jack at each mooring cluster. By doing this, the company could cut by a factor of four the time needed to pull in the chains.”
