New Edition Alert – Mooring Equipment Guidelines 4

The Mooring Equipment Guidelines has been fully reviewed and updated for the fourth edition. Mooring a ship to a berth is a common function for the maritime industry, however incidents that harm ship and terminal personnel still occur. This publication establishes recommended minimum requirements that will help ship designers, terminal designers, ship operators and mooring line manufacturers improve the design, performance and safety of mooring systems.

All tanker vessels should carry this publication if they wish to be able to demonstrate compliance with SIRE VIQ and the content of Chapter 9 specifically.

To ensure compliance, simply contact your GNS customer services team to order your copy – customerservices@gnsworldwide.com

New chapters and key changes include:

  • Enhanced guidance for the purchasing, condition monitoring, and retirement of mooring lines and tails.
  • Enhanced guidance on documentation of mooring equipment.
  • New chapter on the Human Factors in Mooring Design.
  • New chapter on Jetty Design and Fittings.
  • New chapter on Ship Shore Interface.
  • New chapter on Alternative Technologies.

The updated guidance addresses the questions raised by readers since the third edition was published in 2008. We have reviewed not only the technical content, but also the language so that the information provided is clear and easy to understand.

The guidance within MEG is sure to enhance the safety of mooring from the design of mooring arrangements using a Human Centred Design approach and an increased focus on the use and understanding of mooring lines and tails.
