Mooring solutions for oil, gas & renewable projects worldwide
The patented Helical Connector™ is a simplified subsea mooring connector suitable for the most demanding mooring applications. The Helical Connector™ is built on Balltec’s experience in subsea moorings and are specifically designed to retain ease of use whilst reducing parts count and negating the need for corrosion inhibitors and environmental seals.
The design of the Helical Connector™ combines the top entry, self-aligning and speedy installation features of the MoorLOK™ with the design simplicity of a traditional ROV H-link or shackle. The Helical Connector™ is a simple 3-piece connector consisting of a male element, female element and connecting pin.
The Helical Connector™ offers:
Self aligning, diverless, top entry connection
Quick and easy connection
One ROV operation to connect/disconnect
Corrosion allowance applied to all surfaces; seals and chemicals are not required
No requirements for special tools to install or release
Can be used with any anchor type at any depth

A custom built Helical Connector™ can be manufactured to suit your project requirements and additional features can be engineered into the tools to ensure we have the right solution for any problem.
