InicioMarine Mooring Rope Maintenance in Panama

Marine Mooring Rope Maintenance in Panama with Oceanco, because the rope strength and durability depend on periodic inspection and a level of maintenance.

Rope must be kept clean of solvents, acids and alkalies, either as fluids or fumes.

Despite their relative resistance to UV, rot, and mildew, rope stored for long periods of time should be kept off the floor in a cool, dry, well-ventilated location out of direct exposure to sunlight.

Mooring Maintenance

Maintenance is a crucial part of a moorings life cycle and must be done at least annually. Failure to do this can result in wear and connection point corrosion being missed which may result in repercussions later on.

It is important to used not only accredited but experienced divers who know what they are looking for as well as being managed by an engineer familiar with mooring configuration and design. It is also imperative that a qualified engineer sign off on these moorings as design integrity is extremely important should be re-confirmed with every new vessel-mooring match up

Causes of damage to wire ropes

Generally due to pulleys, sheaves, rollers and/orfairleads being seized or otherwise damaged. This is acommon form of damage to mooring wires – repeated dragging by the stevedores over concrete knuckles and along the quay is probably the most common cause.Corrosion

Caused by unprotected wires being exposed to salt water and the elements. The smaller the diameter of the wire, the less effective the internal lubrication.

Uneven spooling on a drum can result in wires crossing. With load on the wire, this can lead to the lower layers of wire becoming crushed, reducing the effecting breaking strain of the wire.

Occurs when a rope buries itself when under tension beneath poorly spooled lower layers, potentially leading to jamming which could result in the wire kinking, being crushed or even counter-rotation.

Fatigue is the result of frequent bending of the wire under load, particularly round under-sized sheaves, rollers, etc. and due to kinking. Fatigue is exacerbated by poor lubrication and corrosion. Fatigue results in the individual strands cracking and eventually failing.

More common in elevator wires, this is the result slight differences in diameter and/or elastic properties.
