Exploration and exploitation of the continental cabinets have additionally led to new and not easy difficulties, advancements and ideas. Offshore actions and advancements have in fluenced and more suitable wisdom approximately either ships and different floating buildings that are berthed and/or moored less than quite a few environmental stipulations. The scope of this ASI was once to give fresh advances in berth ing and mooring of ships and mooring of floating offshore constructions, targeting versions and instruments to be had with a view in the direction of security and relief of frequencies and results of accidents.

The mooring safety system described in references 2and 3 is designed with due consideration to the fact that mooring and fendering must be considered as one entity. This system must not contribute to oscillations due to swells, wind gustiness or shifting currents. Monitoring devices provide all the information that any master or port manager requires when considering the safety of the vessel at berth as well as the stability of the pier. Expanded to its fullest, the_system will control all mooring and fender forces, activating winch controls, alarm systems and even cargo pumps and disengagement systems for loading arms.

For containers below deck the angle between the guides and the vertical should never exceed about 3 degrees. For a 40 ts container this gives a horizontal force of about 2 ts. 6 m max movement horizontally or a little more than listed in table 2. Skilled personnel is essential to perform such operations safely. Accidents have happened by which a container became jammed in a hatch due to the movements of the vessel, and too slow release of hoisting cables, resulting in the crane turning over. The same has happended with clam shells.
