Eco-Friendly Anchor


The anchoring weight used during the GNS offshore operations remain on the bottom after the SPN unit has been acoustically released. To meet present environmental demands, GNS developed disposable anchors that minimize ecological and environmental operational footprint. After operations are finished, the concrete decomposes into commonly found on the bottom quartz sand and other elements naturally occurring in sea water.


Our dissolvable anchors produce no dangerous or corrosive decomposition products. After use they return to the natural cycle causing no adverse environmental effects. Additional benefits of our anchoring weight include its high initial strength, the possibility to control decomposition rate changing it from a few weeks to several months and its ability to dissolve in water with wide temperature range.
