Dover is to be the first European port to install an automated mooring system using vacuum technology and developed by Mooring Systems (MSL), following the signing earlier this year of a European licensing agreement between MSL and Cavotec Group in the Netherlands. David Foxwell explains.
The marine market is cautious in adopting new technology and Mooring Systems' MoorMaster automated mooring products represent a significant change, says MSL managing director Peter Montgomery.
Vacuum-mooring pioneer Mooring Systems has announced plans for a "reverse takeover" with its Dutch business partner Cavotec to form a top- 50 New Zealand-listed company.
Despite failing to secure a shipto-ship mooring equipment contract with the US Navy, Christchurch-based Mooring Systems remains optimistic about its future. Mooring Systems' ceo Peter Montgomery says the company has 20 prospective deals before it and seven patent applications under consideration. Current projects include trials at Salalah and Dover, ongoing work in Europe and the sale of two units for the New Zealand Interislander ferry Kaitaki.
