OPERATIONAL CONSIDERATIONS. Some important operational design
considerations are summarized in Table 3-16.
Table 3-16. Mooring Operational Design Considerations
What is the skill of the people using the mooring?
What are the consequences of failure? Are there
any design features that can be incorporated that
can reduce the impact?
Ease of use
How easy is the mooring to use and are there
factors that can make it easier to use?
Can features be incorporated to make the mooring
safer for the ship and personnel?
Extreme events can occur unexpectedly. Can
features be incorporated to accommodate them?
Future customer requirements may vary from
present needs. Are there things that can be done
to make a mooring facility more universal?
