Cylindrical floater facilitating permanent mooring in cyclonic areas
Sevan Marine's floater concept can be moored in fixed orientation even in the harshest environments.
We have through studies, several model test series as well as results from full scale motion recording proven that permanent mooring in areas with tropical cyclones is feasible.
The linked paper, which was presented at OTC in Houston May 2013, concludes:
- Safe permanent mooring in areas with tropical cyclones is proven feasible both by model testing and by operational experience with smaller units in harsh North Sea conditions
- In deep waters (>800m) and such conditions, use of SCRs is feasible
- Offloading to standard equipped oil and LNG tankers seems obtainable.
