The synthetic tethers are available as either a LANKO®FORCE or GAMA 98® rope construction in Dyneema®. The high modulus polyethylene core provides the strength and mechanical performance expected of these subsea tethers. The entire rope core is protected by a braided jacket and polyurethane coating and includes ROV handling points for ease of installation and maximum service life.
All riser, umbilical and mid-water arch tethers are manufactured at the Lankhorst Offshore deepwater rope production facility in Portugal. In addition to industry leading, rope manufacture and test facilities, the company’s rope engineering team is able to provide comprehensive technical support at every stage of tether production. During tether installation, Lankhorst is able to ensure that experienced service engineers are on hand to monitor on-site handling and installation, as required.
Lankhorst synthetic tethers are highly technical products that provide the highest levels of mechanical and fatigue performance for production critical risers, umbilicals and midwater arches over many years.
