Marine energy - Wave, tidal and other water current converters - Part 10: Assessment of mooring system for marine energy converters (MECs)
|Publication Date:||1 March 2015|
|ICS Code (Hydraulic energy engineering):||27.140|
The purpose of this Technical Specification is to provide uniform methodologies for the design and assessment of mooring systems for floating MECs (as defined in TC114 scope). It is intended to be applied at various stages, from mooring system assessment to design, installation and maintenance of floating MEC plants.
This technical specification is applicable to mooring systems for floating MEC units of any size or type in any open water conditions. Some aspects of the mooring system design process are more detailed in existing and well-established mooring standards. The intent of this technical specification is to highlight the different requirements of MECs and not duplicate existing standards or processes.
While requirements for anchor holding capacity are indicated, detailed geotechnical analysis and design of anchors are beyond the scope of this technical specification.
