InterMoor Limited have recently completed the change-out of 12 mooring lines on the Alba Floating Storage Unit (FSU) currently moored in 140 mtrs of water offshore in the North Sea. The FSU is operated by Chevron.

The scope of the project included engineering, procurement, delivery, vessel supply, and installation of over 3,135 Tonnes of mooring equipment including spiral strand wire ropes, chain, and connecting links.


Utilising the Island Valiant as the primary installation vessel, and the Pacific Duchess as the heading control vessel, InterMoor successfully recovered, installed and tensioned the 12 replacement mooring lines between May and July 2019.

Operations were completed with 3 separate equipment mob/demobs which were managed and controlled through ChainCo’s quayside yard in Montrose UK.

The project was completed on schedule within all design tolerances and with no disruption to the FSU operation throughout.
