We maintain the largest inventory of mooring equipment and technology. Our global network of shore bases is strategically positioned around the world and aligned with out customers' localisation strategy and timeline. Leveraging our inventory and mature local supply chain partnerships ensures availability and logistical efficiency.

Whether you are mooring a floating wind turbine, a wave converter or an oil rig, mooring engineering and design are integral parts of our complete solution that enable us to choose the right fit-for-purpose equipment and installation procedures.

Integration and access to the right combination of equipment close to where you need it help to reduce mobilisation times, carbon emissions and environmental footprints. Our bespoke mooring solutions can include mooring integrity plans and regular inspection schedules, and we work in partnership with other Acteon segments to provide mooring integrity measurement tools and corrosion prevention services.

Can you tailor your equipment to the needs of my project?

Acteon Solution

We customise the size and design of our equipment, from anchors to grapnels, to fit the requirements of each project.

Proof Points

  • For each project, we give you the choice to rent or purchase equipment to best fit your needs.
  • All our proprietary anchors can be designed, tailored and fabricated to suit regional and project requirements.
  • We routinely add additional ballast to our drag anchors if necessary for hard seabed or quick penetration.
  • For installation, we strive to incorporate client equipment such as boats into our mooring designs and we have successfully used smaller anchor-handling vessels for permanent mooring installations.
