Company News Release #10

Thailand: Mooreast MA5S anchors have found their way in the Gulf of Thailand.

A total of 12 units of Mooreast MA5S anchors have been successfully installed for 2 newly developed oilfields in the Gulf of Thailand last month. Each of these MA5S anchor weighs 12 tons and comes with 4.7 ton ballast as well as class certification for permanent mooring.

According to our client, these MA5S anchors have met their required mooring load and penetrated into the hard soil without any issue. Furthermore, these anchors were able to orientate themselves correctly when they reached the seabed. The client is very pleased with Mooreast as the MA5S anchors have performed well during the installation.

Till date, more than 100 units of Mooreast MA5 anchors have been deployed in the offshore regions of Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Japan, Norway and Thailand. Mooreast is hopeful that the MA anchors will reach more parts of the world especially with the introduction of Mooreast’s MA7 Anchor in the upcoming months.

Company News Release #9

 Malaysia: More MA5P anchors successfully deployed at marginal field in Offshore Malaysia.

8 units of 15 ton Mooreast MA5P anchors have been successfully installed at a newly developed field offshore  Terengganu earlier last month. The installation team has delivered a great job by completing the installation  within the time frame set.

 “This is the third oil related floater project where Mooreast supplied its own MA5P anchors. Taking into  consideration that Mooreast started to develop, design, fabricate and market its own brand of High Holding  Power Anchors only 12 months ago, this is a very remarkable achievement during such a relatively short  period. It is also a testimony to Mooreast insistence on quality control and high standards throughout as  demanded by the industry” said Mr Chua Eng Boon, Commercial Director of Mooreast.

 In addition, Mooreast supplied 8 lengths of Dia 90mm Grade R4 chains with respective connecting shackles  and BV approved MA in-house designed chainstoppers to complete the 8-point spread mooring system for this  project.

 “We are obviously delighted with the outstanding performance of products and services supplied by Mooreast  especially their MA5P anchor and their engineering capability. Within a tight project deadline, we are able to  complete the project successfully together with Mooreast team” commented Mooreast’s client.

Mooreast is looking forward to the installation of the fourth project for a similar system in the coming months, in this case offshore Sarawak with 18 ton Mooreast MA5P anchors.

Company News Release #8

Norway: Mooreast has its first MA5 anchor installed in the North Sea.

Mooreast has delivered a 7 ton MA5S anchor including internal ballast, pick points and accessories under DNV GL classification to Stavanger, Norway recently. For this occasion the MA5S anchor is used for an installation job at a newly developed field West of Stavanger, Norway. The MA5S anchor was selected due to its capacity and suitability in hard soil conditions and was installed successfully to the contractor’s required installation load (pictured above).

“The field complexity and hard soil conditions encountered at that part of the North Sea decided that the MA5S anchor was the most suitable for this application. The anchor has been fabricated in Europe and it is the first full project handled by Mooreast Europe since its start in October 2014” said Roderick Ruinen, Director of Mooreast Europe.

“This is definitely a breakthrough for Mooreast as the European market has always been challenging due to the presence of several established players as well as high requirements and standards applicable, specific to this part of the world” commented Norbert van Vliet, Business Development at Mooreast Europe.
Mooreast is grateful to have received more enquiries from Europe, Middle East, Africa and America especially after exhibiting for the first time during the recent Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston.
