We have clear policies in place to ensure health and safety and care for the environment is an integral part of our operations.

Low environmental footprint

We take our environmental responsibility very seriously and make sure that our operations have minimal impact:

  • Our carbon footprint is low compared to other station-keeping solutions. Our mooring systems do not require fuel to keep your offshore assets in place, which in turn means no air pollution and no carbon emissions.
  • Our anchoring systems do not generate any noise pollution, as they do not rely on rotating machinery to maintain effective operation. As a result, our underwater acoustic footprint on marine life is null.
  • Our chemical impact is also limited as no solvents or lubricants are required to run our systems. The result is an insignificant impact on water pollution. Even the paints and coatings on our certified mooring equipment is specially selected to have low residual solvent dispersed whilst in use.
  • We reuse and recycle. The average lifespan of chain in 25 years. The same chain can be reused dozens of times before it is recycled back into raw steel. Some equipment can be downgraded to ballast instead of scrapped. We send out our old mooring fibre rope to be used to make alternative products for other industries.
  • We decommissioned the first spar that would be used in the Gulf of Mexico Rigs-to-Reefs program. Since it was laid onto the seabed at that specific site, the Red Hawk spar offers a unique, cave-like environment for fish.
  • We help prevent environmental disasters. Our station-keeping systems ensure both the integrity of the well and the reliability of operations during drilling. Pre-installed moorings provide the most robust solution minimising the risk of catastrophic failure.
  • The way we do our business onshore is also guided by international standards with all our Ports and Logistics bases certified to ISO 14001 (see below).
  • Some of the measures we have undertaken to lower our footprint
    • Use of a selective catalytic reduction additive in our diesel forklifts to reduce harmful pollutants like NOx and replacement of all diesel and gas fork lift trucks to electric ones at our Broadfold Road facility
    • Implementation of an aerosol can puncture station in our fabrication workshop
    • Installation of sensor switches, LED lights, and recycling points in offices around the world
