Delmar Systems introduces next-generation mooring component
BROUSSARD, La. -- Adding to its portfolio of innovative mooring solutions, Delmar Systems has introduced the Delmar Quick Release (DQR). The DQR is an in-line mooring component with a simple mechanical release that allows the rig to safely and efficiently offset or depart from a moored location in an emergency, with or without the use of support vessels. This allows the rig to be offset and leave location without waiting on vessels to mobilize and arrive.
The DQR can be used with any anchor foundation and allows for safe mooring of DP rigs, as well as traditional moored rigs. Additionally, the DQR can be reconnected in the field, without recovery to shore, by simply replacing the shear pin.
