BROUSSARD, Louisiana -- Delmar Systems has installed its 100th OMNI-Max anchor in the Gulf of Mexico. First installed for offshore use in 2007, the anchor has since moored four MODUs for three operators at 12 locations in water depths ranging from 950 ft to 3,800 ft (290 m to 1,158 m).

The Delmar OMNI-Max anchor is a gravity-installed vertically loaded anchor (VLA) capable of being loaded in any direction 360° around the axis of the anchor.

Under extreme loading and uplift angle conditions, the OMNI-Max anchor will penetrate deeper into the soil to gain needed capacity.
