Automated Mooring Systems Order for Cavotec

Press Release
Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Cavotec wins order to supply 18 MoorMaster automated mooring units for a Mediterranean Sea port.

MoorMaster is a vacuum-based automated mooring technology that eliminates the need for conventional mooring lines. Remote controlled vacuum pads recessed in, or mounted on, the quayside, moor and release vessels in seconds.

Under the terms of the contract, Cavotec will engineer, manufacture, install and commission 18 MoorMaster MM200C units, which will be used on an exposed container berth on the Mediterranean Sea. By reducing mooring times to a matter of seconds, the MoorMaster units will deliver higher rates of productivity and utilisation that are not possible with conventional mooring methods.

Commenting on the announcement, Juergen Strommer, Managing Director of Cavotec Middle East, said: "This exceptional order highlights the efficiency gains that MoorMaster provides to port operators and shipping lines, and is indicative of how the technology is rapidly being adopted across the maritime industry."

"In addition to the high degree of safety offered by the system, MoorMaster also enables operators to maximise utilisation, and increase efficiency and productivity. It represents a genuine evolution in mooring operations," he added.
