Driving Environmental Stewardship: The RAR Plus™ Releasable Mooring System in Focus

14 February 2024

We're excited to share that the RAR Plus Releasable Mooring System is featured as a case study in the ESG report by the National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA). This innovative technology is not only enhancing operational efficiency for our clients but also significantly reducing their environmental impact. Here's how:

1. Emissions Reduction: Compared to traditional mooring systems, the RAR Plus™️ enables faster disconnection without needing support vessels, leading to substantial fuel savings and CO2 emission reductions. The report highlights that moorings become greener than dynamic positioning (DP) after 15 days, and even sooner (10 days) with our system.

2. Protecting Marine Life: By eliminating the need for constant thruster use in DP, moorings significantly reduce acoustic emissions, minimizing harm to marine fauna. Australia's NOPSEMA even acknowledges the benefits of moorings in protecting marine life.

3. Beyond CO2: The RAR Plus™️ offers additional benefits like cyclone/hurricane evasion, reduced HSE exposure, and rig move efficiency. It's a comprehensive solution for sustainable offshore operations.
