Helical Subsea Mooring Connectors (SMC’s) are a simplified connector suitable for the most demanding mooring applications. Helical connectors build on Balltec’s experience in subsea moorings and are specifically designed to retain ease of use whilst reducing parts count and negating the need for chemicals and environment seals.
The Quality and Reliability of offshore mooring hardware is of paramount importance, the simplicity of Helical Connectors offers unmatched confidence and reliability from one of the world’s leading mooring connector suppliers. The design of the Helical Connector combines the top entry, self-aligning and speedy installation features of the more complex ball and taper mooring connector with the simplicity of a traditional ROV H-Link.
Balltec Ltd, who specialise in ball and taper connectors is constantly finding new applications for the oil and gas industry. The Helical Connector is the first none ball and taper product to be added to its portfolio.
Martin Bell, Sales and Marketing Director said: “The Balltec team is very proud to introduce the Helical Connector. As a company we have a significant track record in subsea moorings and we are always looking to develop and innovate. The Helical Connector is a product that moves away from complex and back to simplicity. We have listened to the market and now, through our range of connectors, we have a product for everyone.”
