Anchors: Stevpris Mk5
Introduced in 1993, the Stevpris Mk5 was the anchor the world was waiting for and very quickly became the most used drag anchor for larger mobile and permanent moorings, primarily because of its principal qualities. At the time it had the best per kilo performance, generating up to 50 times its own weight in holding capacity proved suitable for all soil conditions.
It proved easy to handle, easy to install, easy to retrieve.
Still today over 2200 anchors of this type are in use and supplied new to newbuild semi-submersible rigs or permanent installations.
Stevpris serves both mobile and permanent applications equally well, because:
- it is easy to handle
- it is easy to install
