The Crosby Group has pioneered a product innovation in the offshore mooring markets with the introduction of the HFL Kenter, a new high fatigue life shackle, under the Crosby Feubo brand.

The Crosby Group is a pioneer in offshore mooring components for the oil and gas and wind energy markets strengthened by the recent acquisition of Feubo in early 2020.

The new HFL Kenter shackle showcases design improvements on the popular Crosby Feubo NDur Link, an accessory used for temporary and mobile mooring applications such as rigging and anchoring offshore platforms or vessels. The HFL represents the latest state-of-the-art evolution of the Kenter shackle concept, which is more than 100 years old.

Oliver Feuerstein, global director of mooring at The Crosby Group, explains the benefits.

The Crosby Group is a pioneer in offshore mooring components for the oil and gas and wind energy markets, strengthened by the recent acquisition of Feubo in early 2020.

“The fatigue life is superior, and it can connect to a variety of stud link anchor chain or other mooring accessories such as sockets and swivels. This feature separates the Crosby Feubo solution from any other worldwide and was accomplished by making it from Grade 6 steel. A logical evolution from the Grade 4 Trident Slim and Grade 5 Raptor Crosby Feubo concepts.”

“The new Kenter Connection is DNV-GL type approved and features the unique Fastlock system – proven to reduce project downtime and mitigate risk from conventional assembly/disassembly methods,” he said.

The Crosby Group provides connectors for anchors, chains, wire rope, a range of synthetics, and a variety of other components that are utilized in many applications by oil and gas and wind energy professionals.
