Mooring Connectors

The choice of mooring line connector solution will often be driven by the installation methodology and the handling issues arising from the deployment scenario. The type of connector used for over boarding the stern roller of an AHV will probably be different from a connector used for installation via a crane barge. Adopting a pre-tensioning methodology may also impact on connector design.

Regardless of installation issues, all Lankhorst fibre rope connectors have the same basic requirements:

• To be lightweight
• To be small and compact
• To meet the design strength and fatigue life
• To be rope friendly and maximise splice efficiency

Lankhorst Ropes supply a range of connection solutions to meet the industry needs in the form of the Lankofirst fibre rope connector and tradtional mooring jewellery: thimble rolls, H-links, Pear Links and Y-links.

We are continuously striving to develop and optimise the functional requirements of the connectors.
