Delmar has installed the first set of RAR Plus units improving upon the RAR technology track record. These nine units were deployed on a moored semi-submersible in the Gulf of Mexico with Delmar’s releasable MOOR-Max system.
The RAR Plus is the next generation of rig anchor release (RAR) that builds on a 35-year history of proven acoustic release technology by adding key features, such as a completely independent manual backup release method and increasing the ultimate and release load ratings. In addition, the RAR Plus can transmit both direct and indirect line tension measurements from internal sensors for real-time display onboard the rig in a user-friendly graphical user interface.
“We are excited to save our customers significant rig time and vessel time during rig disconnections with our MOOR-Max releasable system using RAR Plus technology,” John Shelton, Delmar Systems Vice President of Engineering, said.
