Mooring equipment

Amongst many others, the Green Award Foundation believes that improvements are very much needed for mooring equipment. Why? Still too many incidents and near misses related to mooring and mooring operations occur.

Also in the light of the human element, Green Award started its own research on this topic and strives to issue new (manageable) requirements for its ranking paragraph in the audit questionnaires. It is quite well possible indeed, that this might result in a normative document based on industry guidelines addressing performance indicators for wires and ropes. The results of this research might affect the upcoming and next revision of the Green Award Requirements.

During our research we became aware that the OCIMF publication “mooring equipment guidelines” is currently under revision, which we applaud.
