NEW TYPE OF SINGLE POINT MOORING: "PROUD"

Fixed single point moorings (s.p.m.) eliminate the subsea moving parts which in buoy systems are subject to wear and fatigue. "Proud" (PRefabricated Oil Loading-Unloading Dolphin) is one such S.P.M. with a ship anchor-looking gravity base. It is towable from fabrication yard to site, self-installable by sequential ballasting, and recoverable. Sturdiness of rotating assembly on friction bearings and low maintenance costs are claimed.
