Mooring systems

Mooring systems

Aqualine's mooring systems are adapted to the demanding environments they will operate in and provide a safe and robust investment.

Mooring systems you can count on. No matter what.

Mooring equipment for net cages has to tolerate winds and weather at the most extreme. That’s why we make maximum use of our knowledge of our field, 37 years of experience in the industry and thorough analysis and calculations to ensure complete robustness. This is why mooring systems from Aqualine meet not only our criteria, but also the requirements of the customer and the authorities to become a safe, robust investment.

Accredited mooring analyses

The starting point for good mooring systems is indepth knowledge of the location the facility is to be deployed in. Aqualine has highly qualified employees and the most up to date tools of analysis available for the dimensioning of moorings.

We combine your experience with advanced location inves-ti- gations. Computer programmes provide the opportunity of simulating the conditions on a given site on a stormy day. Floating collars, nets and all moorings are being modelled in the programme. By entering data for currents, winds and waves for the location, the computer programme calculates the forces the mooring and the floating cage collar and net will be subjected to within the safety margins which are required in the NS9415 standard. This facilitates optimization of the components of which the mooring system consists.

 




  • Aqualine mooring plate

    The mooring plate is the cornerstone of the entire mooring system. Our robust and hard-wearing steel plates are designed to avoid wearing lines, and is available in several thicknesses - from 40 to 70 mm.

    Aqualine mooring plate:

    Our hot-dipped galvanized mooring plate is the most critical component in the mooring system. Aqualine deliver a very strong and solid mooring plate which is designed to withstand the brutal forces at the most exposed sites for Aquaculture.

  • Aqualine buoys

    Aqualine buoys have chains running all the way through and pressure-relief plates to prevent damage to the body even when the forces of nature do their worst. We will help you find the size of buoy required to support your mooring system.

    Aqualine buoys:

    The Aqua and APB buoys have been constructed by means of a rotation moulded PE shell filled with polystyrene foam (EPS) with a compressive strength of 5m Vs, density 250kg/m3. The passing chain is terminated in each end of the buoy by the use of relief plates which prevent any damage to the buoy body. The chain is easily shackled onto the anchoring line. All wearing parts are standard components and are easily replaced
    when they are worn.

    The Aqua and APB buoys have been designed for surface use and are equipped with 4 yellow daylight fluorescent reflector discs. Buoy sizes from 1500 litres and upwards have been adapted to SABIK lanterns.​

  • Anchors

    Our highly adaptable fluke anchor is effective on most seabed types. After years of theoretical and practical testing, it has demonstrated its trustworthiness.

    Anchors:

    The anchor type provided by Aqualine has a high holding capacity to weight ratio, giving it a very low cost per ton of holding capacity compared to any other type of anchor. The anchor penetrates the sea-bed easily thus giving high holding capacity with little dragging of the anchor. The steel construction is very strong and de-signed to withstand the forces which the high holding capacity provides.

    Since the holding capacity of the anchor is related to the amount of soil to be dis-placed by the anchor when pulled upon by the anchor if it pulled out, the anchor with the largest fluke and deepest penetration will have the highest holding capacity. The holding capacity is also strongly related to the ability of the soil on the seabed to stick together. To obtain a solid anchoring point, compact soil is important and to leave it as undisturbed as possible. Our anchors are therefore designed to not plough up and loosen the soil.​

     300372  Aqualine fluke anchor  1000 20

  • Anchor chains

    Aqualine anchor chains meet our high quality standards. Third party approval plus our own regular audits of production ensure that they are more than able to hold when the weather is at its worst.

    Aqualine Anchor chains:

    In addition to fibre rope the mooring lines incorporates heavy anchor chain. The combination of elasticity in the fibre rope with the weight of the anchor chain gives the mooring line optimized behaviour when opposing the combined effect of the wind,  current and waves. Aqualine delivers studless anchor chain grade 2.​

  • Chain slings

    We always seek to exceed requirements laid down by the authorities as a supplier. 35 years of experience, testing and monitoring our Nordic manufacturing suppliers means we can guarantee quality.

    Chain sling:

    To reduce the number of components in the mooring system, Aqualine delivers chain slings for fixing of floating cage collars and anchoring lines. The chain sling consists of galvanized long chain slings with a welded hot galvanized loop in the end. The loop is thread into the hawser eyelet so that a control point in the form of a shackle between the chain and the rope thimble is avoided. Length of chain can be adapted to customer needs.​
