Mooring Lines Dipped and Bollards Tested

Best Practice mooring in the Port of Stavanger.


Mooring lines dipped and bollards tested to 50T SWL with the date of last test stamped on a metal plate on each bollard. Other port authorities should demonstrate a similar level of safety management at the interface between ship and shore. It is not a difficult task to do but despite the equipment being safety critical, it is rarely checked!
