Based on the system application, environmental conditions, and customer needs, SST personnel designs anchor and mooring solutions to obtain the highest level of cost efficient performance. Our engineers have more than 40 years of experience analyzing the most complex military and commercial installations.

Our experience includes:

  • Deep water mooring including
    Marine Micropile TechnologyTM
  • Hydrodynamic analysis
  • Watch circle determination
  • Component selection
  • Installation and procurement plans
  • Custom designed & integrated systems
  • Tension Analysis
  • Single or multiple leg analysis

Using the ANSYS AQWA suite of software programs, SST predicts the behaviour and internal loading on up to 50 interdependent structures during a variety of simulated environmental events. Utilizing internal software developed by our personnel, SST analyzes complex mooring structures in up to 17 different layers of soil.

SST corrosion and materials experts have completed many inspections on mooring systems that have been successfully deployed for several decades. Our staff has a wealth of experience from the development of every new design. Specialists include a Corrosion Engineer certified as a Corrosion Specialist by the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE).
