AUTOMATED MOORING ORDER FOR CAVOTEC

Tuesday, March 5, 2019 

Cavotec has signed an agreement with an unnamed port operator to equip two berths at a terminal with MoorMaster automated mooring systems.

Cavotec will design, supply and commission the MoorMaster automated mooring systems for the two berths. Deliveries are scheduled to start in 2019, with the systems entering service in 2020. The order value amounts to about €10.3 million, whereof a majority is expected to be recorded in 2019 and the remainder in 2020.

MoorMaster is claimed to improve safety, reduce environmental impact, and substantially increase operational efficiency by cutting mooring times and reducing vessel motion. 20 years after the installation of the first system, the company says it is the only proven and widely used automated mooring technology on the market.

To date, around 280 MoorMaster units have performed some 500,000 moorings at ferry, bulk and container handling ports, as well as locks and ship-to-ship applications worldwide.
