Samson Offers Brochure On Passive Mooring Systems For Supply Vessels

Bow and stern mooring systems that improve supply boat operations in hostile environments are described in a brochure just prepared by Samson Ocean Systems, Inc. Defined as passive systems, they utilize the special load-elongation characteristics of Samson two-to-one braided ropes to modulate peak loads and simultaneously generate the required restoring forces to maintain the supply vessel within a predetermined area. This reduces the chance of collisions with offshore rigs, simplifies tie-up procedures and reduces the danger and high cost of rope breakage.

Samson passive systems have been designed for more than 50 jackups, semi-submersibles, and production platforms. The brochure includes operational procedures, illustrates key components and specially designed hardware, and describes typical systems. A user's list is also included.
