Delmar Successfully Completes Mooring Line Replacement on Deepwater Facility
In July 2017, Delmar Systems Inc. completed a mooring line replacement on a deepwater facility in the Gulf of Mexico.
The mooring line sections were composed of 127 mm partially sheathed spiral strand wire. Delmar was responsible for providing the complete engineering, project management, fabrication, and installation vessel package. The methodology was based on using a standard AHTS type vessel with an A-frame, offering significant overall cost-savings to the project. Delmar’s scope included installation analysis, installation aid design and fabrication, vessel outfitting, sea-fastening, procedure development, vessel procurement including ROV and survey spreads, offshore operational personnel, and storage and marshalling of equipment at Delmar’s Port Fourchon, LA shore base.
Dillon B. Shuler, P.E., Delmar Project Manager, said, “The project showcases Delmar’s capabilities in providing turnkey project services and demonstrates that offshore construction work can be completed efficiently using typical AHTS vessels combined with our experienced engineering and operational planning. It was a very successful project, and I am proud of the Delmar project team for completing the work incident free.”
