  • The IM-Release is a game-changing mooring line quick release connector.

    When compared with other quick release connectors, its significantly lighter and more efficient design allows for faster and safer offshore installations.

    Acoustic release mooring connectors allow a rig’s mooring legs to be released remotely and immediately, in case of emergencies, severe weather events, or simply to save time and money during rig moves.

    A lighter acoustically operated mooring connector has been developed that can release under tension loads as high as 900 mt. At a quarter of the weight of previous connectors, it is also easier and safer to install, saving an average of seven hours per rig.

    The battery life has been improved from eighteen months to five years. The implementation of domain key authorization, network relay and frequency hopping techniques strongly improves the reliability and availability of the system, especially in case of conflicting noise or power issues.

    Acoustic signal redundancy can be affected by obstruction, conflicting noise from rig, or power issues from the modem. The implementation of relay mode is an important improvement in terms of acoustic signal redundancy. The relay mode function strongly improves the reliability and availability of the system. 

    The acoustically operated mooring connector is based on two components, each field tested and with a strong track record:

    - The SRP Rocksteady subsea connector (DNV and ABS verified), which is the world’s leading

    renewable connector and has been used on all major wave and tidal projects around the world

    - Teledyne’s acoustic modem, which has been used for underwater location beacons, ROVs,

    seismic technology etc…

  • IM-Swivel

  • The IM-Swivel is a multi-purpose mooring swivel that can join chains of the same or dissimilar sizes together, allowing for 360° rotational freedom while under tension.

    Connecting directly into studless or common stud link chain, the swivel does not require any kenters or joining shackles. This is not only an economical advantage but also a time saving hook-up benefit.

    The assembly of mooring equipment on the back-deck is time critical and the IM-Swivel reduces the number of connections in the system while still providing rotational freedom for assembly, anchor manipulation, wire or chain twist and overall torsional control.

    New for 2019, the “IM-Swivel-R5”, a fully type-approved grade R5 mooring swivel. It is used to connect 76mm (3”) or 84mm (3.25”) mooring chains together. Fully in accordance with DNVGL-OS-E302 and ABS mooring guidelines.

  • SEPLA Anchor
    The combination of two proven anchoring concepts – suction piles and plate anchors – to increase the anchor point efficiency of pre-set moorings and reduce mooring system costs for floating structures....

  • When InterMoor introduced its patented SEPLA system in 1997, it was a revolutionary concept in deepwater mooring.

    The combination of two proven anchoring concepts – suction piles and plate anchors – to increase the anchor point efficiency of pre-set moorings and reduce mooring system costs for floating structures.

    Today, that pioneering concept is proving its remarkable value in deepwater scenarios around the world. SEPLA anchors are safely securing floating structures from the Gulf of Mexico to West Africa and the Far East.

    SEPLA: EFFICIENCY IS EMBEDDED THROUGHOUT THE SYSTEM

    InterMoor’s SEPLA system uses a suction follower (similar to a suction anchor) to embed a plate anchor deeply in the soil. The suction follower is retracted once the plate anchor is brought to design soil depth and can be used again and again to install additional plate anchors.

    SEPLA anchors are more efficient geotechnically than the suction anchors used most often to offset significant vertical loads. Whereas a large part of a suction pile’s structure is unused after installation, the SEPLA plate anchor is fully embedded in deeper, higher strength soil layers, with all components actively resisting the mooring loads.

    Because they utilise a suction follower, SEPLA anchors are classified as direct embedment anchors. This means the precise location and depth of the anchor is known (whereas location and depth of drag-embedded anchors can only be estimated). In congested fields, where a clear area to drag in an anchor may not exist, SEPLA is the ideal solution.

    SEPLA anchors are used for both temporary and permanent moorings (i.e. drilling rigs and production facilities).

    SIZE + EFFICIENCY = SIGNIFICANT SAVINGS

    Because of their geotechnical efficiency, SEPLA plate anchors are significantly smaller and up to four times lighter than equivalent suction anchors. This size and weight advantage substantially reduces anchor costs. (For example, a suction anchor 9.5 ft. in diameter and 70 ft. in length weighs 68 tonnes. An equivalent SEPLA measures 8 ft. by 20 ft. and weighs 24 tonnes.) The simple plate construction of SEPLA anchors accounts for even more cost efficiency. That’s because SEPLA anchors are far less complex than drag-embedded VLAs. InterMoor can provide suction followers that are suitable for most MODU and permanent mooring applications. And SEPLA fabrication costs are a fraction of an equivalent suction pile.

    Although SEPLAs require a suction follower for installation, the total project cost savings using SEPLA anchors can be greater than 50%.

    SEPLA FABRICATION: EXCELLENT AND ECONOMICAL

    At InterMoor, we’ve matched an excellent system with equally superior and cost-efficient fabrication. SEPLA anchors and ancillary installation aid equipment are manufactured by InterMoor at our fabrication facilities. Our network of service yards ensures that operators will have the installation crews and SEPLA mooring component inventory near deepwater drilling and production areas worldwide.

    SEPLA ADVANTAGES:

    • Precise anchor location (both in plan and depth)
    • Simple plate construction
    • More efficient than suction piles
    • SEPLA fabrication extremely cost efficient
