Delmar teamed with Fugro Chance to develop a mooring position system to help monitor mooring lines in relation to subsea assets. Delmar’s DelCat catenary program was combined with Fugro’s Starfix system to create Starfix.Moor.

Starfix.Moor is a 3D visualization package that provides an overall scene of the rig, seafloor assets, and mooring catenaries. The scene is updated in “real time” so that the operations can be monitored and adjusted as needed. This new system will help make rig moves safer.

Since its release in 2005, Starfix.Moor has been used on over 200 offshore jobs for several clients including Shell, Eni, Apache, and BP. Starfix.Moor has also developed into a valuable project-planning tool for clients so that subsea hazards can be better taken into account during the modeling/planning phase.

  • 3D and 2D visualization of each mooring line in real time
  • Real-time monitoring of rig, AHVs, ROVs, and mooring lines
  • Audible and visual alarms
  • Support of true digital terrain model (DTM)
  • Computation and display of tension at rig and AHV
  • Multiple cameras and views show the scene from any desired vantage point
