OFFSHORE ANCHOR MOORING LEGS
The offshore mooring legs are attached to the FC with two on each side of the trident pierhead and, beginning after
the trident pierhead, each alternate section of the causeway is moored.
Sixteen offshore mooring legs are available to secure the FC from drifting. The offshore mooring leg container is a
20 ft full access ISO container that provides stowage for two anchor mooring legs and supports the installation of the
mooring legs from the FC deck.
An offshore mooring leg contains the following items:
Two 2,400 lb NAVMOOR anchors.
Two 150 ft lengths of 1¼ in. wire rope.
One vertical padeye.
Two 30 ft lengths of 1¼ in. wire rope.
One mooring buoy.
One 1½ in. swivel.
Eight 1 3/8 in. bolt type anchor shackles.
The offshore mooring container is placed on alternate sections of the FC deck, when preparing to set the anchor legs.
The anchor leg components are stowed in the container in a way that allows an entire mooring leg to be pulled from
each end of the container and set by a warping tug. After the mooring legs are set, the container is removed from the
FC to the beach.
