Spread Mooring Systems

LMC provides spread mooring systems on a full Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC), or design only basis

our experience

LMC has the capability and experience to design and supply spread-moored systems, perform the geotechnical assessments, and design and fabricate or procure the piles or anchors, as well as design and supply the chain stoppers and deck reinforcement required. 

LMC provides installation engineering including procedures and routing layout drawings and can also procure the required winches, sheaves and ancillaries in order to provide a turnkey solution. For riser systems, LMC provides dynamic riser system analysis to assess both strength and global fatigue, Pipe Line End Manifold (PLEM) design, and hang off balcony engineering.  LMC can then either procure and supply the risers, or support the client in all aspects of the procurement on both technical and commercial aspects.

LMC has completed the detailed development of a number of spread moored units including FPSOs, FSOs and barges.  Involvement has varied from full detailed design (including specification, design, procurement, and installation of key mooring components such as chain stoppers) to third party verification work.
