Deep Sea Mooring (DSM), a Vryhof company, is to take delivery of multiple RigLOK quick release mooring connectors to support drilling operations.
Manufactured by Balltec Engineered Solutions, a UK company known for its pioneering innovation in ball and groove connectors, RigLOK smart technology enables DSM to deliver highly efficient rig moves, with reduced anchor handling operations off critical path for MODU drilling campaigns while at the same time significantly reducing vessel costs.
RigLOK is particularly suited to operational environments susceptible to Tropical Cyclones or Artic conditions where rapid disconnection for storm or iceberg evasion may need to be considered. A unique benefit of RigLOK is its ability to be released on command under significantly higher loads than market alternatives, based on reliable technology proven offshore over decades in the field of permanent moorings.
The purchase is part of the Vryhof strategy to be a leading supplier of total mooring solutions world-wide.
