Flintstone Introduces New Subsea Tensioned Mooring System
Flintstone Technology has developed a new subsea tensioned mooring system that will officially launch at OTC on May 01.
The new system provides simple connection and disconnection, along with the ability to tension at the seabed or mid-line.
Flintstone, which was recently majority acquired by MacGregor Norway, developed the subsea tensioned mooring system after a client requirement for a simple method to be able to change out mooring lines.
Andrew Clayson, managing director, Flintstone Technology, said: “By taking into account all aspects of a system – from installation and re-tensioning in-service, to the need to change mooring lines – we have been able to substantially reduce both the capital expenditure and the system’s ongoing running costs.”
