Abstract:

Design of the buoy-dolphin mooring system for the Diego Garcia pier was driven by operational requirements, installation constraints and environmental considerations which make the mooring quite different from standard Navy Fleet Moorings. These differences make the installation of the moorings more critical in some respects than conventional fleet moorings and they need to be understood by those responsible for the hardware acquisition and installation. Keywords Mooring systems, Buoys.
