Mooring system design

Mooring Layout

Effective design and analysis of mooring layouts is an essential element of a successful port. We have extensive expertise in this area, including evaluating the limiting conditions for ship-to-ship and ship-to-structure operations.

Each berth has particular requirements depending on its location. These range from dealing with long-wave resonance  throughlarge tidal range, to optimising the use of the available mooring equipment and specification of criteria passing ship criteria. Before beginning the analysis Aktis Hydraulics first maps out the terminal’s requirements and boundary conditions. A numerical analysis of the ship’s behaviour identifies any limiting conditions, pinpointing and assessing the weakest link.
