Free Brochure From Baldt Details Moor-Free™ Rapid Release System

Baldt Incorporated, Chester, Pa., has announced the availability of a six-page, full-color brochure, Bulletin 100, that details the Moor-Free Rapid Release System. This innovative computer-assisted system allows offshore rig operators to safely free a vessel from its moorings four times faster than previously possible.

The brochure provides detailed technical information and specifications of all Moor-Free Rapid Release System components. The core of the system consists of Baldt's disconnect link. This unique link is armed when needed with a detonating bolt assembly containing an acoustic receiver. The link is fitted into the mooring system in a similar fashion to the standard Baldt chain connecting link. The disconnect link is then lowered below the water line and detonated by an acoustic signal.

Once detonation occurs, the mooring is released.

The brochure also provides information on coaxial (hardwire) detonation for applications such as launching, towing, fleet mooring, and other situations where kinking and pinching of the cable cannot occur. It also details Baldt's worldwide training program, warranty, and inspection services agreement.
