Abstract:

This report documents the design of the CEL 100K Propellant Anchor, and outlines the mooring requirements and designs as well as the procedures, equipment, and operations involved in installing the propellant anchors and connective gear for tanker moorings at Diego Garcia. This successful installation demonstrated that this type of anchor can be used to advantage in Navy and other applications, particularly where uplift-resistance is desired or where effective anchoring is needed in a hard seafloor.
