Valley Cottage, NY — 01/12/2018 — Ship Anchor Market: Overview:

Ship anchoring is a frequent operation. It is very similar to unloading or loading a cargo. The anchor crown is allowed to hit sea bottom after flukes take position and get embedded into the sea bed. Furthermore, anchor design, nature of sea bed and cable scope are some of the prime factors that affect the holding power of ship anchors and therefore, affect the safety of ships. The number of ship equipment decide the length of the chain and anchor weight and the fluke area determines the anchor's holding power. Majorly, there are three types of anchors — super high holding power anchors, high holding power anchors and normal holding power anchors. These play a vital role in a ship's movement and operation. However, material defects in anchor shanks and flukes, excessive wear and tear of anchor crown pin, damages caused to anchor crown during the drop and while hitting rocks may hinder a ship's movement. These factors may hamper the ship anchor market during the forecast period. Similarly, pulling may break off flukes if stuck between rocks. In case of an anchor loss, a majority of ship companies rely upon compatible and class certified second hand ship anchors as a spare anchor through visual survey and proof load testing, which is another factor that might impact this market negatively during the forecast period.
