Mooring Bollard
Oct 05, 2018

    The mooring column is designed and selected according to berth capacity and structure type of wharf to meet the requirements of safe, reliable and convenient operation of ship leaving wharf, berthing, shifting and turning. The boll is composed of shell, anchor rod, nut, washer, anchor plate and column core filler. The ship's columns are cast iron (HT200) and cast steel (ZG230-450), specifications: 50KN-2000KN

    According to usage, there are general ship columns, storm ship posts, trial ships and so on.

    The center of the common mooring column is generally about 0.5-0.8 meters away from the front line, too close, easy to be collided when the ship is close to, and is not safe for the operation of the cable; too close, hindering the loading and unloading machinery operation and damage to the cable. For the bathing and repairing wharf, the mooring column is required to be a little farther from the leading edge, about 0.8-1.0 meters, due to the electric box and other facilities in the front.

    When storm ships are used for storm, they are used for mooring lines and are usually located behind the wharf. Some ports do not install storm mooring columns because they have few chances to suffer typhoons or because ships do not take shelter in harbors during strong winds; some ports, in order not to hinder the operation of loading and unloading machinery, do not install storm mooring columns at the rear of the wharf, but enlarge the size of ordinary mooring columns so that they can also be used in high winds.
