ASKER, Norway -- The Energy Products Division of Parker Hannifin has completed testing of the world’s largest polyester, deepwater, mooring line. Parker began testing as a result of its qualification program as a supplier for ultra-deepwater floating production units.

The polyester mooring line required a breaking strength of 2,300 metric tons (2,535 tons) to qualify. Parker prepared two prototype samples for testing and both exceeded the breaking requirement by a substantial margin, with the highest result at 2545 metric tons (2,805 tons).
