After rigorous testing in collaboration with DNV, to gather the required data for their ‘DIGIN’ software, the Bruce GP anchor has been added to the DIGIN programme. Bruce Anchor is a Moorings and Anchors product and service line brand in marine and energy infrastructure services group Acteon.
The DIGIN programme provides a scalable anchor database and allows users to predict the anchor behaviour during installation. A DIGIN report is required before any installation on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
The test results were excellent, and through DIGIN, Acteon can now offer a detailed report for the anchor’s expected embedment behaviour and holding capacity, prior to a client’s anchor selection process being finalised.
The Bruce GP anchor has the largest fluke area and the highest holding capacity of any drag embedment anchor (size for size) available on the market today.
