WHAT IS IT?

TFI SeaSprings are polymer springs designed to change the overall behavior of the mooring system, providing a non-linear response. They deliver a smarter rather than just a stronger mooring system. The Seasprings response is stiff at low loads but compliant around the thrust load of the wind turbine, which is the opposite of a chain or rope system, which starts off compliant and gets stiffer as they elongate.

HOW IT WORKS?

The SeaSpring allows the platform response at its operating or survival loads to be tailored, resulting in substantially lower maximum loads on the mooring system. The mooring system configuration can be optimised depending on the desired performance, i.e., maximum load reduction, fatigue reduction, footprint reduction, etc

MOORING LOADS

TFI Marine SeaSprings convert tension in the mooring line into compression of a polymer spring, reducing mooring line tensions by more than 50%.

Different size and stiffness TFI SeaSprings can be combined in a mooring line to target different sea states e.g., some SeaSprings will reduce ULS load, while other SeaSprings will be targeted at OSFR (Operational Scenario Fatigue Reduction).

*Depends on mooring configuration and desired performance.

COMPATIBILITY

TFI SeaSprings are compatible with every single type of mooring configuration, line type and wind platform. This comprehensive compatibility empowers you to enhance the performance and reliability of your mooring system across any setup, ensuring optimal results in the ever-evolving field of offshore wind energy.

Built for these Industries

Floating Offshore Wind
Floating Offshore Wind

The TFI Marine SeaSpring is already viewed by many as the industry leader in mooring load reduction. It is the only device actively engaged in the Certification process with PPI in shallow wind, where it has achieved DNV prototype status.

Our new generation of reliable, effective and compact mooring line solutions will now provide the global market with an excellent opportunity for
total cost reduction.

Aquaculture
Aquaculture

Our Aquaculture team has years of experience in this industry and bring a wealth of knowledge and understanding on how critical a mooring system is for floating offshore fish farms. Our SeaSpring will provide peace of mind for this industry and positively change the cost and risk landscape for existing and future Aquaculture farms.

Oil and Gas
Oil and Gas

Our SeaSpring mooring system will be a vital element in the importance of keeping floating offshore facilities in position in the unstable and harsh deep-water conditions at offshore oil and gas fields. Our mooring device is designed to sustain extreme loads of waves, water currents, and wind.
