Cavotec wins global orders
MoorMaster units have been in operation at the Seaway for a number of years and six more will be installed on the US side
Cavotec’s automated mooring technology, MoorMaster, has been ordered for application in Australia and America.
SeaRoad Holdings, Australia’s transport and logistics provider, has purchased two additional MoorMaster MM400A10 units to supplement its existing installations in Devonport, Melbourne.
“The MoorMaster continues to gain traction and acceptance in the market place. These orders, from new and existing customers, demonstrate the considerable potential of this unique technology in the global maritime sector,” said Ottonel Popesco, CEO of Cavotec.
This brings the mooring capacity to five MM400s at each berth to cater for a larger Ro/Ro vessel being introduced on the route between Melbourne and Tasmania.
Cavotec is also supplying six MoorMaster units for the two locks on the US side of the St. Lawrence Seaway. The units are scheduled for delivery for the first lock in July 2016 and the second in April 2017.
The St Laurence Seaway is considered to be one of the greatest engineering feats of the 20th century, at 3,700km-long it is an essential trade link between the Atlantic Ocean and the Great Lakes at the heart Of North America.
To date, 200 MoorMaster units are installed at 28 locations around the world and have completed more than 130,000 mooring operations at their Ro/Ro, container and bulk handling and lock applications.
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.
