Rocksteady QD - Acoustic Disconnection of Moorings with Extreme Loads

Moored drilling and production rigs operating offshore in harsh environments may be subject to extreme weather events such as iceburgs and hurricanes, that require controlled disconnection from their mooring system. Rocksteady QD is a mooring connector developed by SRP that can release with loads up to 900 metric tonnes, equivalent to 87mm R5 chain break load, it is operated remotely via a Teledyne acoustic modem and can be deployed for up to 5 years before battery replacement. Details of potential uses will be presented, as well as the integration of Teledyne technology in this system.
