OFFSHORE ANCHOR MOORING LEGS
The offshore mooring legs are attached to the FC causeway and located on alternate sections of the causeway.
Sixteen offshore mooring legs secure the causeway 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 deck of the floating causeway.
An offshore mooring leg contains the following items:
Two 2400 lb NAVMOOR anchors.
Two 150 ft lengths of 1 1/4 in. wire rope.
One vertical padeye.
Two 30 ft lengths of 1 1/4 in. wire rope.
One mooring buoy.
One 1 1/2 in. swivel.
Eight 13 1/8 in. bolt type anchor shackles.
The offshore mooring container is placed on the floating causeway, transverse to the causeways axis, 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 floating causeway to the beach.
