Criteria of Accidental Damage by Ships Anchors of Subsea Gas Pipeline in the Gdańsk Bay Area
1 Maritime University of Szczecin, Szczecin, Poland
ABSTRACT: This paper discusses issues of the accidental anchor damage to offshore subsea pipeline as one of the most significant threat to underwater infrastructure. The density of vessel traffic over the pipeline between platform Baltic Beta and Wladyslawowo power plant has been analyzed. In order to determine the most common damages associated with heavy ship traffic, the authors used the risk model for underwater infrastructure. For this purpose ships anchor equipment has been categorized and as the results the criteria of damage to the pipeline have been discussed.
