SNEEK, the Netherlands – Lankhorst Mouldings will supply vortex-induced vibration (VIV) suppression strakes, distributed buckling mitigation buoyancy, and a new type of bend restrictor to Statoil for use on Aasta Hansteen. This is the world’s largest spar hull, built by HHI in South Korea, moored in the Norwegian Sea at up to 1,300 m (4,265 ft) water depth.

Lankhorst’s patented Tri-shell VIV Strakes offer a low weight per piece and efficient design, in combination with a low overall transport volume.

Lankhorst’s bend restrictors can be easily installed and can be quickly removed using an ROV.
