Anchor Handling Tools
Delmar Systems has a large inventory of certified mooring hardware, anchor handling tools, and equipment for use in mooring operations and for rent. All equipment is extensively tested and inspected, approved, prepared, and tracked from date of purchase and throughout its service life.
We also provide specialized tools and equipment that address specialized tasks which are purpose designed and specific to Delmar. As with all of our mooring gear, our tools and equipment are inspected and tracked throughout their service life in order to assure safety and reliability.
Some of our anchor handling tool categories include: chase/tow wire, chain, chasers and hooks or various designs, wire spooling units/turntables, buoys, connection hardware, as well as deepwater air winches/compressors.
Delmar inventories a large supply of certified wire available for any mooring-related job. Delmar has a large inventory of long length certified chase wire to reduce connection points and possible failures. In addition, Delmar maintains comprehensive tracking of the wire from date of purchase through wire life, ensuring the highest quality wire is used. Whether your requirement is for 1 1/2″ tow wire or 3 3/4″ certified mooring wire, Delmar is ready to meet the challenge of mooring in all water depths.
Delmar inventories a large supply of mooring chain. Whether your requirement is for a standby/backdown system or 3 1/4″ certified mooring chain for a preset mooring system or chain replacement, Delmar can provide equipment to satisfy any mooring requirement.
The Delmar Deepwater J-chaser is designed to retrieve anchors when a wire has parted during the deployment or retrieval process or when a specialized anchor deployment process does not employ the rig permanent chaser system. The Delmar chaser is non-commercial designed and produced specifically for our use with our customers. Our deepwater chasers offer less damage to mooring gear, increased breaking capacity and much better material composition than any market commodity type of anchor handling tools.
Wire Spooling Units/Turntables
Delmar has designed and built several wire handling units available to facilitate wire change-outs, both dockside and in the field, on vessels and MODUs. We have spooling capacity available in the Gulf of Mexico, Australia, and the ability to ship these units to continents globally.
BuoyDelmar provides a large inventory of steel and submersible syntactic buoys for use with mooring systems. Delmar surface cylindrical buoys range from 5′ x 7′ to 12′ x 16′ and are available for rent or on an as-needed basis. Our sub-surface buoyancy can be provided in either steel construction or syntactic materials. Our buoys are multi-purpose and can range from 1.7 kips to 35 tons and up to 10,000FSW submersion.
Delmar rents a full and complete inventory of connection hardware such as swivels, connector links, pear links, tri-plates, grapnels, and sockets. These serialized components are tracked and inspected prior to each job use. Each on of these components is class certified, material specified and tracked from its original delivery to Delmar until it service retirement. With any one of these pieces, our customer will know when and by whom it was produced, when it was purchased and each and every time it was used down to how many days it was used. Additionally, between each use, these components are NDT and visually inspected prior to being returned into re-useable stock in our inventory management system. On every Delmar job, we provide a comprehensive documentation package for this equipment containing the pertinent certification records along with the inspection history.
Delmar has an inventory of deep-reach air winches and the required supporting compressors for specialty, subsea installation and mooring projects.
