A core section of the Indianic group commercial diving division is the provision of mooring services throughout Australia. Indianic install, inspect, and maintain both commercial and private moorings with the most stringent inspection procedures and environmental consideration. Indianic has provided these services for over 14 years and are held in high regard by naval architects and governing bodies.
Our Services include;
- New Installations: Indianic supply and install new moorings from 5m private vessels to 3000t commercial moorings. We work closely with naval architects to design and install commercial moorings, adapting to environmental requirements, serviceability, and location restraints.
- Mooring Inspections: We provide both private and commercial mooring inspections to the relevant controlling bodies criteria. Inspections range from visual and tactile inspections to full destructive testing (removal and relay).
- Mooring Maintenance: As part of the mooring inspection and certification process, Indianic maintain moorings in accordance with our maintenance procedures and design criteria. We supply and replace components using the highest grade recommended components to assure moorings are kept up to specification in often highly volatile locations.
- Mooring Cleaning: Indianic provide a service to clean the mooring apparatus of marine growth, clean pickup ropes, buoyancy in the mooring buoy, and visual aesthetics.
Specialised Support Equipment:
Indianic have designed and built multiple specialised vessels for the purpose of mooring installation, inspection and maintenance services. One of our vessels, the ‘Indi Spirit’ is a 10m Jet boat equipped with differential GPS and electronics for precision accuracy and compliance. It has a certified “A” frame and open transom for recovery and offloading components, such as clump weights, chain, and anchors.
This custom purpose built vessel is also equipped with hydraulic systems that can support a 5000psi water blaster for cleaning buoys and components, as well as a range of hydraulic tools. We also have available sub-sea hydraulic drill rigs which are offloaded sub-sea with the A-frame and can drill 3m holes 300mm in diameter into the seabed and sandstone rock.
