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 or pontoons, moor and release vessels in seconds. As of February 2016, MoorMaster™ units had performed more than 150,000 mooring operations at ferry, bulk handling, Ro-Ro, container and lock applications worldwide.
