Anchor handling tugs are ocean-going vessels with sufficient deck space and winch capacity to pick up and reposition laybarge anchors. Under direction from the laybarge, they continually pick up the laybarge's anchors one at a time, moving them to the next position. They are used to tow and deploy offshore rigs & moorings and also used for long distance towage, salvage, pipe laying assistance and anchor handling operations. It conducts anchor handling and towing gear suitability and carries out inspections and surveys of damaged mooring anchor handling & towing gear.
Anchor security seals are strong and suitable for a wide range of sealing applications. The one-piece seal consists of a hollow capsule and anchor type insert connected by a thread. Upon insertion, the legs or barbs become permanently retained behind the inner stops of the capsule, so the anchor cannot be withdrawn. These seals offer higher security and easier sealing procedure without the use of tools.
