Mooring Systems

Dedicated mooring packages are available depending on buoy type and local conditions. Important engineering parameters are: depth, current profile, tidal range and maximum expected wave height. Main components are:
  • Elastic section: rubber cord (safety line optional)
  • Sinking section: aluminum sinker weights of 1 kg
  • Floating section: polypropylene rope
  • Special terminals
  • Floats

Elastic Mooring for Navigation Buoys
Datawell rubbercord for navigation buoys have shown to substantially reduce wear by keeping the mooringline under permanent tension. Key features are:
  • Simple and robust design
  • Large ratio of maximum cord length and minimum cord length
  • Specially suited for shallow water with relatively large tidal range
