Tasmania’s specialised maritime systems in global demand
For over 50 years, Muir Engineering has been designing and manufacturing high-quality, anchoring systems and mooring systems for leading commercial shipyards, navies and coast guards globally. Renowned worldwide for quality, reliability and durability, Muir’s anchoring systems provide peace of mind for military and maritime security operators.
Muir’s anchoring systems have been fitted to all recent RAN and Australian Border Force patrol vessels and will be fitted to the RAN’s Arafura class Offshore Patrol Vessels and six additional Cape class Patrol Boats. Muir’s anchoring systems are also installed on US Coast Guard and Indian Coast Guard vessels.
CEO Grant Asher said Muir has set industry standards for heavy-lift anchoring systems internationally based on innovation, engineering excellence and practical experience.
“Muir has maintained a continued focus on research and development, which has seen the progression and expansion of high power to weight ratio equipment that is dependable” Mr Asher said.
