Preparing an eight-point anchor system for a drilling rig.
Maersk Supply Service successfully completed its first contract for an anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessel in Mexico in May 2020. As part of the preparation for a drilling rig to begin work on the field, Maersk Transporter installed anchors and chain for an eight-point anchor system.
Maersk Transporter made two voyages from Mexico to Port Fourchon in the United States to load out the required equipment. Four anchors and 1600+ meters of chain were loaded during each voyage.
Back on location offshore Mexico, a total of eight anchors were installed, and more than 3200 meters of chain was laid on the seabed. The chains were then connected with a pennant wire to a surface buoy to await the arrival of a drilling rig.
“The pre-lay was completed safely and efficiently – a job very well done by the crew. As the first contract for one of our AHTS vessels in Mexico, we are proud to have demonstrated the strong capabilities of our vessels and crew to this market,” says Michel Ole Pedersen, Operations Manager Mexico.
