SSCV Thialf Barge Mooring Analysis

Orca Offshore has performed four (4) multi body barge mooring analysis for Heerema Marine Contractors for their Lundin Edvard Grieg project. The barges will be moored at the stern of the SSCV Thialf in preperation of the lift off of the modules. The scope include”:

  • Full dynamic mooring analysis
  • The Crane vessel and the barge have both been modelled as separate bodies
  • Fenders, bollards and all mooring lines have been modelled.
  • Allowable seastates have been determined based on the allowable loads in the system.

For the dynamic mooring analysis the Orca Offshore  inhouse developed multibody mooring analysis tool has been used which is based in the software MOSES from Bentley.
