SHIPMOOR: New Mooring Tool

SHIPMOOR, a new ship mooring tool designed to perform static and dynamic ship mooring analyses in a rapid, user friendly and intuitive manner, has been launched by HR Wallingford and Witherbys. Created to make the assessment of mooring an LNG carrier a straightforward and user driven process, SHIPMOOR provides ransparency and accurate data alongside a 3D visualization of any arrangement. Developed with security at its heart, SHIPMOOR runs within an internet browser and meets the IMO’s newly introduced cyberse- curity requirements.
