USA: InterMoor Places Mooring Chain Order

InterMoor, an Acteon company, has placed the largest chain order by length of any provider in recent years with one of the world’s largest chain manufacturers.

More than 32 km of 84- and 76-mm chain is on order for delivery at the end of the year, which will be added to already the largest holdings of mooring equipment in the world. The chain, available to customers worldwide, will be used to renew and supplement InterMoor’s vast inventory of mooring equipment and will be used primarily to support the company’s preset mooring programs or add on to the mooring components of drilling rigs.

In addition to the chain purchase, orders for buoyancy and ancillary equipment have also been placed to support the growing needs of InterMoor’s regional locations.

Tom Fulton, InterMoor president, said “This purchase will strengthen InterMoor’s position as the leading global mooring, foundations and subsea services company and will offer our customers quicker access to vital equipment, thereby reducing downtime and costs,” said Tom Fulton, InterMoor president. “This is a very large investment that shows commitment to the developed regions and will help our customers start exploring in areas where constraints in the supply of chain might have previously been a challenge. Renting equipment speeds up the mobilization of drilling rigs, reduces capital investment requirements and enables our clients to concentrate on their core work.”
