K12 - Design of mooring and anchoring
The current report summarizes the mooring system design proposed for the recommended Bjørnafjorden floating bridge concept K12. The concept is generally the same as proposed during the concept evaluation and can easily be adapted to the other concepts that has a mooring system. Several mooring systems were considered at the start of the project and these are briefly discussed in the current document. The proposed system is a taut system with fibre ropes as the main component and chain segments at pontoon connection and anchor. The mooring system consists of two groups of mooring lines, each group consisting of eight mooring lines. The lines in one group are connected to four pontoons, with one line to each side of each pontoon.
