The mooring system holds the OE Buoy in position and is key to its survivability in the gale-force winds and extreme sea states likely to be encountered in suitable sites. It has proven capable of surviving the worst the North Atlantic could throw at it. Watch the video:
Ocean Energy Mooring Technology
Ocean Energy are utilizing proven designs and engineering of their mooring system to ensure that it is capable of surviving the worst of sea conditions.
Throughout the rigorous testing phase in Atlantic Waters the mooring system has already survived over 3 years in the ocean, including scaled 32m waves during trials.
