Dedicated Deepwater and Single Point Mooring Hawser Production Facility
Lankhorst Ropes Offshore Division has relocated its rope production facility for deepwater mooring ropes and single point mooring (SPM) hawsers to a new purpose built factory at Viana do Castello, on the coast about 80 km north of Porto, Portugal. The new facility will make it easier for the large reels of deepwater mooring rope to be transferred to the quayside ready for load out.
The new factory covers some 3,600m² production facilities together with 2,400m² storage area. In addition to new rope production machinery, the factory includes a significantly larger SPM make-up and storage area reflecting the factory’s increased SPM production capacity.
“For the first time, the new factory provides us with a dedicated manufacturing facility for deepwater ropes and SPM hawsers,” says Wilco Stroet, managing director, Lankhorst Ropes. “Our investment in synthetic ropes manufacturing and storage resources means that Lankhorst is well placed to supply the needs of our offshore customers for the coming years.”
Lankhorst Ropes is currently undertaking a number of deepwater mooring projects, and in 2011-12 achieved another significant increase in single point mooring hawser sales.
