AMOG is able to perform design analyses using advanced numerical techniques and state-of-the-art software, covering a broad range of issues pertinent to the design of offshore aquaculture mooring systems. This includes the modelling and analysis of mooring systems for multi-pen facilities, feed barges, and combined fully coupled systems.

AMOG provides expert advice on the preparation, analysis, and review of metocean data which is crucial to the design of offshore aquaculture mooring systems. Utilising our diverse capabilities, we can also provide expert opinion in relation to both operational issues and failure investigations.
