It is estimated to reduce hardware cost with up to 50 percent compared to traditional mooring solutions based on steel chains. The solution has so far been thoroughly assessed through a pre-project phase, identifying significant mooring-hardware cost savings. The pre-project was financially supported by Innovation Norway, Equinor, TotalEnergies and Semar. Following the encouraging pre-study results, the Research Council of Norway financially supports ongoing research into the technology, alongside other partners.
