GRD Franmarine’s expertise when it comes to the design, installation, inspection and maintenance of moorings is unsurpassed in Western Australia. In 1995, the company commenced developing a low impact mooring system specifically designed for installation and environmentally sensitive areas. The final product, the EzyRider Mooring and Offset Anchor System, was commercialised a decade later and to date, more than 800 EzyRider Moorings have been installed throughout Australia.
In addition, GRD Franmarine is responsible for the inspection and maintenance of over 700 moorings throughout the State each year. The capacity of these moorings systems range from small pleasure craft up to some of the largest ship moorings in the state, which are in some of the most environmentally extreme locations in Australia.
The most notable project to date being the inspection and maintenance of Dampier Salt’s Cape Cuvier 100,000 tonne loading facility mooring, situated 100km north of Carnarvon located in hazardous conditions. GRD Franmarine succeeded in completing this most challenging of tasks further demonstrating our commercial diving professionalism and capabilities.
