Gravity based mooring points 18.07.2010

Last friday we deployed the first gravity based mooring point. Operations went as programmed, and the mooring point was successfully positioned. In the background, the self-floating mooring point seconds before its immersion. In the next days we will deploy the remaining ones.
The operations lasted approximately six hours, and towards the end we had 1m of wave. The waves did not interphere with the activity, proving the robustness of the method and of the procedures: in those conditions it would have been almost impossible to operate a barge.
