MARINE: Anchor's Support For Scarabo7
Recent Western Cape Business News
Anchor Industries has completed the manufacturing of six 96mm and eight 120mm Euroflex Mooring lines for the Scarabo7 vessel, a semi submersible drilling rig, moored at A Berth in the Cape Town harbour.
Manufactured in various lengths to keep the vessel alongside when in port, 14 mooring grommets had to be manufactured for this vessel. It was of great importance that Anchor Industries manufactured these grommets to strict quality standards and control because of their crucial function in a rig’s fixture within the hazards of a confined harbour environment.
The company stocks mooring ropes, and is able to cut and splice these ropes to match their clients’ exact requirements.
“Offshore supply projects are cyclical by nature and difficult to predict. For instance, we have seen a significant increase in our October turnover of 80%, compared to the month of the previous year. We have been able to supply all the equipment that was needed for these projects and with the decision to increase our stock holding earlier last year, it has enabled us to be competitive in this high demand period”, says Dale Hutcheson, managing director of Anchor Industries.
Anchor provides services including testing, repair, re-certification, onsite socketting and splicing, mooring design and spooling of steel wire rope.
In line with its emphasis on quality and reliability, Anchor Industries has formed partnerships and alliances with major equipment suppliers worldwide. All Anchor Industries equipment is available for rental, sales and testing.
