CYCLONE MOORING INSTALLATION IN TORRES STRAIT
The commercial dive division of North Marine were tasked to install cyclone-rated, 360-degree swing moorings off Thursday Island in the Torres Strait for the shipping company Sea Swift.
Scope of Works
The 360-degree swing mooring consists of 54mm stud-link chain running out to three Stingray anchors. The cyclone moorings are rated to hold cargo vessels up to 500 ton in weight.
North Marine completed the project installation on time and to budget.
Installing a Swing Mooring off Thursday Island, Torres Strait
The Torres Strait is a group of Islands located north of Queensland, Australia and south of New Guinea. The remote location of Thursday Island, Port Kennedy, poses numerous environmental and logistical challenges for the mooring installation.
Critical factors such as strong tidal movements are key considerations for North Marine’s commercial dive division when planning and installing vessel moorings throughout the Torres Strait.
Sea Swift is the largest shipping company in Northern Australia. Sea Swift operates both domestically and internationally, providing cargo and freight shipping services. They have bases of operation in Far North Queensland and the Northern Territory.
North Marine commercial divers install and maintain numerous boat mooring infrastructure for Sea Swift in Cairns, Queensland and the Torres Strait.
