Lankhorst Offshore Supplies Mooring Lines for Karish and Tanin FPSO

Lankhorst Offshore has been awarded a contract by TechnipFMC to supply the mooring lines for the Energean Power Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel for the Karish and Tanin gas fields, offshore Israel.

Energean Israel, who leases and operates the Karish and Tanin gas fields, will use the FPSO to process the reservoir fluids and export sales gas from these fields to the shore of Israel via a 90 km pipeline.

The Energean Power FPSO will be spread moored using 14 mooring lines arranged in 2×4 and 2×3 clusters at 1750 meters water depth.

Lankhorst is supplying 28 rope lengths, arranged in two segments per line, totaling 43,400m of Cabral 512 deepwater mooring rope with a minimum breaking strength of 12,400 kN.

Each mooring line will comprise a chain top segment, polyester rope middle segment and chain bottom segment, connected to a suction pile anchor.

Cabral 512 polyester ropes utilize a rope construction that is optimized for deepwater mooring applications.

The Cabral 512 ropes will be manufactured at Lankhorst Offshore’s factory, dedicated to the production of offshore mooring systems, in Paredes, Portugal.

The Energean Power FPSO will be the first permanently fiber rope moored offshore facility in the Mediterranean. We are delighted to be awarded the mooring lines contract for this prestigious project,” said Neil Schulz, sales director, Lankhorst Offshore.
