Balltec Wraps Up Mooring Connectors Set Up for Streamlined FloatMast Blue Project

Balltec has completed the installation of four subsea adjustable mooring connectors and H Links for FloatMast Blue project on behalf of Streamlined Naval Architects in Greece.

Streamlined’s FloatMast Blue Floating Met Mast Tension Leg Platform is installed off the Greek island of Makronisos as a demonstration project which will provide meteorological data for a period of 12 months.

Balltec provided an offshore technician to oversee the installation of the connectors which were originally supplied in 2018. The connectors, which are rated to an MBL of 450 mT, were adjusted to the required tension via a hydraulic tensioner installed on to each connector with their operation controlled from the surface.

Theodore Papatheodorou of Streamlined said: “We would like to thank all the Balltec team for their valuable support on this innovative project and we shall keep you updated for the progress of FloatMast Blue and hopefully for any future project.”
