Mooring solutions for oil, gas & renewable projects worldwide
- The MoorLOK™ is the world’s only patented ball and taper subsea mooring connector with over 300 connectors in service. The MoorLOK™ is helping to reduce the CAPEX cost of projects by significantly reducing the installation time associated with mooring hook-up.
The ability to disconnect the MoorLOK™ connector at any time during the life of field can also significantly reduce OPEX costs that may be incurred in the event of mooring line maintenance or replacement.
Whilst some mooring products claim to rival the MoorLOK™ its unique advantages ensure it stands apart from the competition with a 100% failure-free track record. With the world’s largest approved forging diameter of 600 mm (24”) the MoorLOK™ is a subsea mooring connector that cannot be equalled.
MBL: No limit. Current design up to 30,000 kN (6,744 kips)
Maximum Depth: No depth limit
Service Life: Designs up to 52 years
Interface: Connectors can interface directly to mooring chain, LTM shackles, H-links, Y-links, sockets and other mooring jewellery
Anchor Types: Suction pile, driven pile, gravity bases, drag embedment anchors, SEPLA anchors, torpedo anchors and any other subsea structure
Material: All load bearing machined components are manufactured from forged ASTM A182 F22 (mod) steel bar to Balltec proprietary specification. Balltec is in partnership with Ofar S.p.A, Italy, for the forging of load bearing components
Applications: FPSO, FSO, drill ships/platforms, TLP, buoys, SPAR, tidal energy devices, floating wind turbines, buoyancy restraints, flowline tiebacks, semi-submersible platforms and other moored structures
Operations: Diverless and ROV-less for rapid subsea installation, compact design that does not compromise on robustness or strength, no T-bars or protrusions, a patented triple locking mechanism (TripLOK™) that remains fail-safe even during zero loading or inversion
Class: MoorLOK™ connectors are manufactured in accordance with all industry recognised standards including ABS, DNV, BV and Lloyds
Approvals: Current approvals for forgings up to 600 mm (24”) diameter, the world’s largest single forging diameter approval for a mooring connector
