Deep Sea Mooring starts Maersk Drilling work off Trinidad

Deep Sea Mooring (DSM), a Vryhof company, has started providing mooring equipment, design, and marine supervisory services to Maersk Drilling in Trinidad.

Under the terms of the contract with Maersk Drilling, DSM will provide mooring equipment, including chain, fiber ropes, anchors, connectors, buoyancy, and handling equipment, mobilization and demobilization services, mooring design services including mooring analyses and geotechnical assessment.

The company will also deploy marine supervisors offshore Trinidad to assist Maersk Drilling and Shell in the drilling campaign that may last up to three years. As well as personnel in the field, the project will be served from DSM Norway.

The news follows the recent awarding of a contract to Maersk Drilling by Shell for the deepwater semi-submersible rig Maersk Developer and which covers drilling activities in block E of the East Coast Marine Area (ECMA) offshore Trinidad.

In addition to the DSM contract, Vryhof Anchors will also deliver its recently launched drag embedment anchor to the project. According to the company, the anchor has a holding power of up to 47% more than previous anchors and can be used in all hard soil conditions.

“Today’s announcement is a tremendous achievement for Deep Sea Mooring and Vryhof Anchors – demonstrating our commitment to the Caribbean and South America on the back of the recent successful work we carried out with Maersk Drilling in Colombia,” said Wolfgang Wandl, CEO of Vryhof.
