Subsea Mooring Connector Fact Sheet

CHALLENGE IMPROVE DELIVER

Subsea Mooring Connector

The Subsea Mooring Connector has been designed for connecting to anchor points on the seabed using a self-aligning male and female forging with simple load pin.

The male, connected to the mooring line, is lowered by crane into the female which is mounted onto the seabed pile or suction anchor.
A simple load pin is inserted through the female and male and the connector can then be lifted away by the mooring line.

APPLICATIONS


The SMC can be used for chain wire or rope connections at the seabed where vertical install is possible such as on suction and driven piles.
The SMC can also be used to handle the piles during their installation.

BENEFITS


  • Simple installation – self-aligning, male is dropped vertically into female and pin is inserted by ROV
  • All ROV installation
  • Tolerant to dirt and debris
  • Easily disconnected by ROV
  • High fatigue resistance
  • No chemical anti corrosion packs required

FEATURES


  • Self-aligning
  • All forged alloy steel construction

STORY


SMC was developed in response to a need to replace ball and taper based connection systems at the seabed, to simplify installation and offer a more robust solution.

SPECIFICATION


  • SMC can be designed to meet all customer specifications
  • Typically a design life of 30 years is achievable
  • Meets DNV-OS-E302 for mooring accessories and similar offshore standards
