Glen hooks provide load readout with continuous remote load recording, this allows the shore facility to warn the vessel crew when high mooring line loads are being experienced. It is designed to provide continuous, automatic monitoring and recording of the mooring line load applied at each hook. The system shall include all equipment, power and control cables, amplifiers, junction boxes, power supplies, electronic data processing equipment, etc. As required to monitor the line loads and transmit the data back to the Shore Control Centre.
GLEN Mooring Loading Monitoring System (MLMS) accuracy and safety
Load Measuring Pins each mooring hook equipped with a load measuring pin installed into the hook at the place of the horizontal hook pin. Each load measuring pin calibrated up to the proof load during the hook load-test.
Load measuring pins have the minimum specifications
Criteria - Design value
Proof Load - Min150% of hook safe working load
Accuracy - +/-2% of the full load
IP rating - IP67
Output - M V/V
Source Voltage - 6V
Certification All Load pins ATEX certified for use in Zone 1 Hazardous Areas.
Alarms Audible and visual alarm functions shall be provided in the shore Control Centre and at each mooring hook installation to warn of high line loads and imbalance between mooring lines
Central Computer system All MLMS data and alarms are shown on a central computer system located in the Shore Control Centre and running Integrated Mooring System software.
