Mooreast Delivers Twelve MA5S Anchors

MooreastTwelve 26 ton Mooreast MA5S anchors complete with 10.2t ballast in anchor fluke and cutter points on the fluke tips were loaded out from Mooreast’s Singapore Benoi yard on 20 October. The assembled anchors, with an approximate weight of 36.2 ton each, were then delivered to Singapore’s Jurong Port quayside for loading onto the installation vessel, as per the customer’s requirements.

Mooreast Europe, a subsidiary of Mooreast Asia Pte Ltd, secured the order from a reputable FPSO contractor. The anchors were built at Mooreast’s facility in Singapore and delivered on time. The anchors were designed and certified by DNV GL for use in a permanent mooring. “We are very grateful that Mooreast Europe has been able to secure this project and appreciate the confidence the customer has placed in us,” says Norbert van Vliet, Business Development of Mooreast Europe. “We are also proud to announce that more than 200 units of Mooreast MA5 series anchors have been manufactured and delivered since its introduction in April 2014.”
