THE OPIMIZATION OF ANCHOR EQUIPMENT DUE TO THE SPECIFIC ANCHORING AREATahun 2019
The anchoring equipment are determined accordingly by considering the applicable parameters, those are maximum
current speed, maximum wind speed, maximum significant wave height. In the parallel work, the references of those
applicable parameters are identified on the Indonesia’s port anchorage area. In order to get more reliable result of
anchoring equipment, additional work is conducted based on these references applicable parameters of port’s anchorage
area. This work will analyse the strength of anchor chain of chosen vessels based on the environmental conditions of its
anchorage area. The strength of anchor chain presented with the safety factor is used as a reference in determining the
New Minimum Breaking Load (MBL). Furthermore, new MBLs are analysed to determine new properties of the
anchoring equipment. The step then verified by anchor chain strength analysis using the anchor property according to
the results that have been generated. Thus, the optimal anchoring equipment will be obtained in accordance with the
environmental conditions of its anchorage area.
