Dutch mooring specialist Vryhof has started the new year by announcing up to US$75 million in new contracts.

The contracts include landmark deals for Vryhof Anchors for the WindFloat Atlantic wind farm, offshore Portugal, the world’s first commercial floating wind farm, and the Havfarm 1 offshore fish farm project in Norway, one of the world’s largest floating structures.

In addition, Deep Sea Mooring (DSM) has secured contracts with Saipem Indonesia, Odfjell Drilling and Noble Drilling for the supply of mooring related services during 2019 in offshore Indonesia, the North Sea, and Myanmar respectively, as well as a large-scale contract offshore Australia. Vryhof Anchors has been awarded an oil & gas contract in Malaysia with SOFEC and connector specialists Moorlink has won several niche contracts in the renewables and oil & gas drilling sectors.

The Vryhof Anchors contracts include:

- An agreement to supply project management services and full scope mooring systems for three floating wind turbines to the WindFloat Atlantic wind farm, offshore Portugal, the world’s first commercial floating wind farm. This project is running in close partnership with Bourbon Subsea Services.

- The provision of foundations for the turret mooring system of the Nordlaks Havfarm 1 offshore fish farm project in Norway with Scana Offshore. This will become one of the world’s largest floating structures.

- The supply of geotechnical expertise and drag embedment anchors to mooring specialists SOFEC for use in an oil & gas project, offshore Malaysia.

Another Vryhof company, Moorlink, a leading provider of connectors and mobile and permanent mooring solutions, has secured a renewables contract in Hawaii, where its high quality swivels are capable of outstanding performance in extreme conditions.
