offshore engineering and mooring

Technical Bulletin 2005

Developing and building structures which can be safely moored and which can safely operate in deep waters is a massive challenge.


These four papers look at specific problems of mooring systems and their relation to squalls, and at the selection of ships which can be successfully converted into FPSOs.
