LANCASTER, UK -- First Subsea and Offspring International plan to jointly develop the next generation of subsea mooring systems, designed for deepwater projects.

The joint development intends to produce mooring systems and connectors that are easier and simpler to install than current products.

"There is a real need for mooring systems that better reflect the rigors of installing in deepwater," says Brian Green, GM of First Subsea. "They need to be designed specifically for this environment, lighter and less complex and, as a result, delivering higher performance than existing systems."
