Mooring Line Chain corrosion allowance?

Asked by lilianlope 5 years, 9 months ago | 1 Answers

The Classification Society defines the corrosion and wear allowance for the mooring line chain as 0.2mm to 0.4mm per year. If I have a company corrosion requirement as a corrosion rate of 0.4mm/year (for a total of 10mm in 25 years) in addition to the annual corrosion and wear rate defined by the Classification Society. The question is: would this result into a total corrosion rate of 0.6mm to 0.8mm per year?

Your interpretation of the requirements for mooring chain corrosion is totally correct. You already described it in details so I do not have anything more to offer.
