Installation and replacement

Installation of quick release mooring hooks follow a relatively straight forward path when applied in design of new mooring structures. Several institutions and authorities offer standards or guidelines to aid in this process, such as Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC 2017), British Standards in the UK (BS 2014), the Marine Oil Terminals Engineering and Maintenance Standards –MOTEMS (CBC 2016) in California, as well as the recently released PIANC Working Group MarCom 153 “Recommendations for the Design of Marine Oil Terminals” (PIANC 2017)
