Mooring tails absorb shock/energy within the mooring system. The EUROFLEX® MOORING TAILS surpass nylon tails in quality, as a result the energy absorption is greater, and the rope remains elastic for longer. Moreover, the rope does not lose a large portion of its dry MBF when wet. As the EUROFLEX® MOORING TAILS’ strength is higher than that of nylon, a smaller diameter of rope can be used, providing better handling. Made of polyester and polyolefin composite yarns, the standard length is 11 m (Effective Working Length). For those circumstances where more stretch is required, the EUROFLEX® MOORING TAILS are also available in 22 m EWL. Both versions are fitted with two protected and spliced eyes of 2 m and 1 m respectively.
OCIMF recommends mooring tails with a MBF of 125% related to the steel wire rope mooring line. Both versions are fitted with two protected and spliced eyes of 2 m and 1m respectively.
