Design services for Single Point Mooring for a Cruise Ship

For a site selection for locating a cruise ship close to a divers paradise, Aktis Hydraulics have performed a detailed metocean hindcast resulting in ambient and extreme wind and wave conditions for various locations in the Red Sea. Subsequently, Aktis have performed concept design and testing of the SPM configuration consisting of various buoy and cateneary chain dimensions to evaluate the workability and design loads in the mooring system. The evaluation of the environmental loads have been done in various stages where the final design has been checked using detailed Orcaflex modelling of all mooring components.
