Mooring Applications
Exploration Drilling Rigs
High Strength Steel Anchor Lines
The demands of a hard working application require that Bridons high strength steel anchor line products are of a robust
construction, excellent abrasion & crush resistance ensuring optimum performance on winches and sheaves. Proprietary blocking
& lubrication medium assist towards the necessary corrosion resistance with additional benefit of a drawn galvanised finish.

DIAMOND BLUE

Floating Production Mooring Systems


Bridons specialist fibre tethers and high strength steel cables for permanent mooring of floating production facilities offer
a range of properties to ensure the suitable solution for your specific requirements - system type, location, water depth,
field life etc.
Bridons in house engineering expertise can provide custom designed connection hardware. Our dedicated project
management team will oversee all aspects of your mooring system project including but not limited to design, manufacture,
QA & QC requirements, shipping & handling of large package weights, on site installation and handling advice.

Diamond Blue offers the highest strength to weight ratio for steel anchor
lines supporting moves to ultra-deep water locations.
See page 10

DYFORM DB2K
Dyform DB2K offers the highest strength to diameter ratio enabling
optimum utilisation of limited volume winch arrangements. Furthermore,
the increased surface area of Dyformed strands improves stress
distribution enabling superior crush & abrasion resistance.

Polyester
Bridon Superline is a torsionally balanced construction and the polyester
material grades offer the highest strength to weight ratio for the permanent
mooring solution. The inclusion of a particle filter layer to limit the ingress
of abrasive particles and a marine finish on load bearing elements to
enhance resistance to yarn on yarn abrasion ensures long term
performance for field lives in excess of 20 years
See page 13

See page 10

XTREME Spiral Strand

Specialist Fibre MODU Tethers


Bridon Superline offers the highest strength to weight ratio facilitating a lightweight anchoring solution. The construction
incorporates an increased thickness braided jacket to provide a level of protection for improved handling performance

Spiral Strand comprising of either heavy galvanised or Galfan coated high


tensile steel wire will enable design lives of up to 15 years. With the
application of a continuous MDPE sheathed jacket lifetime performance
increases beyond 20 years with no requirements for inspection or
maintenance.

Off-take Mooring Systems


A comprehensive design package tailored to suit individual location requirements for single point moorings and tandem
offloading systems. Packages include chafe chains, support buoys, shackles and fittings and are based on our high quality
specialist fibre ropes. Bridon Superline Nylon and Viking Braidline Nylon Super Hawser offer a higher strength to weight ratio than
conventional constructions and both are fully compliant with OCIMF Guidelines for the Purchasing & Testing of SPM Hawsers.

Nylon Super Hawser


Viking Braidline Nylon Super Hawser is a balanced, flexible construction
which distributes the weight and strength equally between the sheath and
the braided core. Viking Braidling offers a higher elongation than competing
constructions and is suitable for many shock load applications.

DIAMOND BLUE
For more marginal fields a high strength six strand wire rope solution with
the optional additional specification of anode inserts and heavy galvanised
wire will facilitate systems of up to 10 years.
See page 10

LTM Sockets and Connection Hardware


The high tensile steel wire solutions are terminated
utilising the Long Term Mooring (LTM) Sockets which
have been developed by Bridon over 30 years of
involvement in this application. Key features include:
Carefully engineered basket dimensions to ensure
efficient transfer of loads between rope
and termination.
Ultra-deepwater rated sealing to prevent
water ingress.
Bend limiter to prevent damage to the cable at the
socket neck during handing and in operation.

Bridon Superline is a torque balanced circular braided construction


consisting of an outer protective braided jacket over a central group of
parallel low twist cores. In the as new condition Bridon Superline offers a
slightly stiffer solution than the Viking Braidline Construction.

Drilling Lines

Offshore Crane Ropes

Drilling lines present a tough application for wire rope, repetitive high load bending over sheaves requiring a flexible
solution with exceptional bend fatigue properties and resistance to wear & abrasion.

Endurance DYFORM 34LR

Conventional, tried & tested lines in regular sizes and tensile grades.

Dyform 34LR multi-strand ropes offer exceptional 'low rotational' properties


incorporating a high steel fill factor that provides high strength, crush
resistance, improved fatigue performance and low stretch.

See page 21

See page 17

Blue Strand API 9A Standard 6x19 Class

Endurance DYFORM 6

DYFORM

Drilling lines typically utilise Dyform Bristar 6 constructions which offers


protection for the core and improved abrasion resistance on draw works,
greater cross sectional stability and excellent fatigue capabilities.

Dyform 6 ropes offer a high steel fill factor, providing high strength,
excellent resistance to crushing and abrasion.
See page 18

Endurance DYFORM 8PI

See page 16

Dyform 8PI ropes are impregnated with plastic providing a cushion within
the rope that increases fatigue life and internal protection, whilst maintain
high strength, crush resistance and low stretch.

Riser Tensioner Lines

See page 19

Riser Tensioner Lines present a tough application for wire rope, repetitive high load bending over sheaves requiring a
flexible solution with exceptional bend fatigue properties and resistance to wear & abrasion.

DYFORM

Dyform Bristar 6 ropes for riser tensioner applications are


designed to give characteristics which enhance fatigue
performance. The compacting process facilitates excellent
resistance to wear on the sheaves and drums.
See page 16

Offshore Winch Ropes


Blue Strand 6x36 Class
Conventional general purpose rope. Available in bright or galvanised
material in the standard range of tensile grades to API 9A and other
international specifications.
See page 21

DYFORM DB2K
Increased strength, fatigue and wear resistance and greater cross section
integrity. A high performance steel wire rope.
See page 10

Endurance DYFORM 34LR


DYFORM outer strands provide controlled diameter with increased surface area facilitation even load distribution
resulting in excellent crush resistance and wear performance.
Typical mode of failure for heavily worked ropes used in drilling line and riser tensioner lines is a combination of internal
wire pressures and bending fatigue combined with corrosion, particularly on the smaller wires of the core. To address this
mode of failure Bridon has designed a solution incorporating the patented Bristar core. The core of the rope is fully
impregnated with high density polymer and is precisely manufactured to replicate its fluted shape within the rope
construction supporting the outer strands. Specialist design and carefully controlled manufacture ensures optimum &
consistent strand gap enabling the necessary stability of construction and high bend fatigue performance.

Dyform 34LR multi-strand ropes offer exceptional 'low rotational'


properties incorporating a high steel fill factor that provides high strength,
crush resistance, improved fatigue performance and low stretch.
See page 17

Big Hydra multi-strand ropes provide an opportunity to utilise large


diameter 'Rotational Resistant' ropes ensuring an excellent fatigue
performance and high strength. Big Hydra is available in conventional or
Dyform construction to suit your individual requirements.

The minimum breaking loads (MBL) are for cables with a drawn galvanised (Z class) finish which gives corrosion
protection for upto 6 years. For corrosion protection upto 10 years the cables are final galvanised (A class). In this case
the minimum breaking loads will be reduced by approximately 2%. Contact Bridon for specific requirements.
