The range and variety of mooring systems and fittings in marine applications to moor buoys is wider than ever before. Different types of chains, shackles, swivels and ropes exist, however, there is a lack of environmentally-friendly options. As we are committed to protecting and supporting the marine environment, we decided to develop a synthetic mooring solution, Ecomoor – the first in the Middle East. Why synthetic mooring? Here’s an overview of the difference between traditional mooring and Ecomoor synthetic mooring:

Unlike traditional mooring chains that sit on the seabed, Ecomoor synthetic mooring is always in a floating state due to the neutral buoyancy of the synthetic line, and as a result, does not damage sensitive areas with coral reefs or seagrass beds. Its light weight means that it is easier to manage from an operational standpoint, reducing transportation and installation costs, unlike chains where heavier lifting and handling equipment is necessary. Ecomoor synthetic mooring delivers a constant tension between the buoy and anchor, decreasing stress at the attachment points and the potential for wear, breakage and drag.
