STANDARDS FOR EQUIPMENT EMPLOYED IN THE MOORING OF SHIPS AT SINGLE POINT MOORINGS

Incompatibility between terminal mooring equipment and shipboard fittings can prejudice both the security of the mooring system and the safety of personnel. It can also prolong the time taken for mooring operations. These difficulties can be overcome by applying standards to the equipment and fittings to ensure correct matching between the terminal and the ship. This publication presents recommended standards applicable to single point mooring arrangements. The main headings are: 1. Preamble; 2. Summary of Recommendations; 3. Safety; 4. Responsibilities (terminal operator, shipowner); 5. Details of Equipment Provided by Terminal Operator (mooring ropes, chafe chains, connecting chain sections for use with Smit type brackets--stopper shoes, mooring snotters, connecting shackles for mooring spotters, support buoys, pick-up wires/ropes); 6. Details of Equipment Provided by Shipowners--SWL Table (bow fairleads, pedestal leads etc, bow chain stoppers, Smit type brakets, mooring bitts); List of Drawings. Order from BSRA as No. 50,018.
