Our parent company (EYE Marine Ltd) has always carried large stocks of top-quality marine-grade used chain in sizes from 30mm to 50mm. They source this chain from merchant ships that are being decommissioned or vessels that are replacing anchor chain to comply with maritime requirements. Generally, due to excessive wear, chain from the mining industry or chain that has previously been used for moorings is unsuitable for any further purpose.
Our used chain is very suitable for many purposes including use as ground chain in mooring systems. Subject to customer requirements and prior to sale we inspect the chain and replace any links that may affect its integratory. Alternatively used chain can be sold in weighed ‘as is’ bundles, because this reduces labour costs it results in a less expensive option.
We feel that when used chain is an acceptable option it also helps environmentally.
