Mooring System Design

Marico’s naval architects have extensive experience in the areas of mooring system development and detailed design studies.

Using knowledge of a wide range of mooring system types and the required modelling & analysis techniques, Marico can:

  • Develop provisional mooring arrangements during feasibility and FEED studies to allow costing of equipment
  • Perform detailed design analyses to standards from Classification Societies or other certifying authorities
  • Installation analyses for mooring systems and related subsea equipment for oil and gas production systems
  • Use metocean to assess offloading operability statistics for floating production systems
