Complete Mooring Systems Soft Yoke Mooring Design
Mocean has been involved in a range of shallow water mooring systems. With 3 patents related to Soft Yoke Mooring systems we are considered a key R&D engineering partner for shallow water mooring solutions. Our shallow water mooring experience ranges from 80 kDWT up to 400+ kDWT vessels.
The key aspects related to shallow water mooring are the non-linearities found in the restoring force curves as well as the uncertainties in the wave frequent motions. For soft-yoke and similar mooring systems Mocean can perform the complete system design from tower/jacket, bearings design, turntable design, yokes, jumpers, mechanical connections and the overall mooring arrangement.
Being part of a range of developments that enable swift delivery of soft-yoke towers has proven to be a great challenge and allowed us to go through very steep learning curves. Exactly the type of projects we live for.
