Lankhorst Euronete Brasil exceeds 800 km mooring ropes production


Lankhorst Euronete Brasil (LEB) has completed manufacture of over 800 Km (500 miles) of deepwater mooring ropes over the past 5 years. Since beginning production at its facility in Queimados, Rio de Janeiro in 2012, LEB has supplied mooring lines for some of the most significant offshore Brazil oil field development projects for Petrobras, SBM Offshore, Hendrik Veder, APL, SOFEC, Teekay, and OOGTK.

Projects have included: Petrobras P series FPSOs and DMA, FPSO Cidade de Maricá, FPSO Cidade de Saquarema, FPSO Cidade de Itaguaí, FPSO Cidade de Caraguatatuba, FPSO Pioneiro de Libra, FPSO Petrojarl1 and Atlanta project, and many more.

LEB is the largest manufacturer of deep water mooring ropes, primarily for the South American offshore oil and gas and maritime markets. It also offers a wide range of heavy synthetic products previously only produced by Lankhorst in Portugal. In addition to rope manufacture, LEB provides a wide range of offshore engineering services to ensure proper rope handling and compliance with installation procedures.

800 Km rope production is an important milestone,” says Rui Faria, Senior Vice President Global Oil & Gas Synthetics, Lankhorst Euronete Brasil. “Over the past 5 years we’ve developed our rope manufacturing capability and services to ensure we are well placed to meet the future demands of the Brazilian pre-salt region, the most promising area of ultra-deep water oil production in the world.”

Design and manufacture of heavy lift slings to meet tight project deadlines has allowed Lankhorst Euronete Brasil to deliver several HMPE sling sets with CGBL (Calculated Breaking Strength) of 384, 1350, 1800 and 3700 MT, and with different lengths, for a heavy lifting project, offshore Brazil.
