mooring buoy / rotation-molded
Our Mooring Buoy consists of four parts in the total buoying system: the body of the buoy, mooring and anchoring elements, product transfer system and other components.Buoy bodyThe buoy body usually is supported on static legs attached to the seabed, with a rotating part above water level connected to the ( off ) loading tanker. The two sections are linked by a roller bearing, referred to as the “main bearing.” The moored tanker can freely weathervane around the buoy and find a stable position due to this arrangement.Mooring and anchoring partsMoorings fix the buoy to the seabed. Buoy design must account for the behavior of the buoy given applicable wind, wave and current conditions and tanker sizes. This determines the optimum mooring arrangement and size of the various mooring leg components. Anchoring points are substantially dependent on local soil condition.
