Spiral strands for anchorage of offshore oil production platforms (deepwater mooring)

Spiral strands for anchorage of offshore oil production platforms (deepwater mooring)
  • Final coated high tensile wires according to EN-10264-2, class A coating, or acc. to customer specs
  • Final galvanized and final Bezinal® and Bezinal®3000 coated round wires (class A coating) , diameter range from 3 to 6 mm
  • Minimum elongation of 4%
  • Tensile strength classes 1770N/mm² - 1860N/mm² - 1960N/mm² - 2060N/mm²


  • High tensile strength wire leading to maximum breaking load on strand level or excellent weight to strength performance (= suited for deepwater solutions)
  • High corrosion resistance leading to long lifetime solutions
  • Excellent ductility on wire level leading to excellent (pull-pull) fatigue properties on strand level
