Mooring is the system related to the mooring line, connectors, and anchor which is mainly used for the station at the station to keep the ship or even the float platform that is done at all levels of depth of water. In such a case Pollisum is your #1 choice for mooring service in Singapore.Line related to the mooring will be connected to an anchor which is on a seafloor that is connected to the floating structure.
How does it work:
The line of mooring is mainly made of rope that is made of a synthetic form of fiber, chain, or wire, and even in a combination of three of these. Various environmental factor like wind, waves, as well as currents,influences the mooring system.
The chain is mainly the common form of choice that is used for the permanent form of moorings in the sallow water up to the depth of 100 m. in the case of steel form of wire rope which is much lighter weight, as well as the higher based elasticity compared to chain, is considered to be the better choice which can be used in the deep water which is up to 300m depth.
The synthetic fiber form of rope is lightest in terms of weight when compared to all form of rope that is used in mooring. They are the configuration of all forms of the chain as well as the wire rope that can be used mainly in the most deep-water.
Anchor: the mooring system mainly depends on the anchor’s strength. The holding capacity of the anchors will mainly depend on the soil properties and the digging depth. The lines of the mooring start from a vessel to that of anchors which are situated on a seafloor. Types of anchors mainly include drag embedment, vertical load, and suction.
It has mainly six forms which consist of the taut leg, single point, catenary, semi-taut, dynamic positioning, and the spread. The catenary form of the mooring system is the most common form of mooring used in shallow water. It is considered to be more economical.
A spread form of mooring system is mainly the group of mooring lines that are distributed over the stern and bow of a particular vessel to an anchor that is on a seafloor. It is more versatile as it can be used in any form of water depth and even on any form of vessel that is spread evenly in a group.
