SINGAPORE-based mooring systems provider Mooreast has secured a major upgrading project offshore Papua New Guinea in its sixth contract with a regular returning client the company declined to name.

The project is for the upgrade and replacement of a complete multi-buoy mooring system comprising six mooring lines – including 15 tonne Mooreast MA5S anchors with additional five tonne ballast, grade R3 chains, connectors, mooring buoys and other mooring accessories.

Mooreast technical director Roderick Ruinen has led the company’s engineering department in soil interpretation and anchor sizing for the project – with all equipment to be manufactured and supplied by a third party.

Mooreast is scheduled to deliver the equipment in the middle of this year, with the upgrading operation tentatively commencing in the third quarter.

Company managing director Sim Koon Lam said this would be Mooreast’s first project in Papua New Guinea.

“We are very grateful that Mooreast MA anchors have reached another country,” he said.

“We aim to serve every continent on the world map with Mooreast MA products in times to come.”

The company has also entered Brazil through a sales deal with Arinque Engenharia.
