Another successful Lankhorst Offshore Deepwater Mooring Installation…


Congratulations to Energean Power on the successful installation of the mooring lines for the ‘Energean Power’ Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) for the Karish and Tanin gas fields, located in the eastern Mediterranean, approximately 90km offshore Israel.

The ‘Energean Power’ FPSO is moored using 14 mooring lines arranged in 2x4 and 2x3 clusters at 1750m water depth. Lankhorst Offshore has supplied 28 rope lengths, arranged in two segments per line, totalling 43,400m of Cabral® 512 deepwater mooring rope with a minimum breaking strength of 12,400 kN.

Cabral® 512 polyester ropes utilise a rope construction that is optimised for deepwater mooring applications. Manufactured from high efficiency sub-rope cores laid parallel within an outer braided jacket, each sub-rope is monitored during rope manufacture to ensure all sub-ropes have equal tension and length. The Cabral® 512 ropes were manufactured at Lankhorst Offshore’s factory, dedicated to the production of offshore mooring systems, in Paredes, Portugal.
