Cyclone Moorings

Cyclone moorings are costly but often under appreciated pieces of infrastructure. Sometimes given little attention until a severe weather warning is issued. Your local port authority and insurance company may insist that you have a properly designed and inspected cyclone mooring. Damien Smith Design Pty Ltd is accredited as a cyclone mooring designer with Dampier Port Authority. We will undertake a detailed vessel analysis to determine wind and wave loads due to cyclonic conditions and corresponding mooring analysis to ensure the mooring design will hold the vessel. Each mooring is provided with a detailed report and drawings, including maintenance checklist to ensure the integrity of the morning is maintained during subsequent installation and repairs.

In our experience moorings seldom remain unchanged, they get moved, used for different vessels, and have parts upgraded. We offer the flexibility to assist with long-term maintenance and management.
