Engineering group, Cavotec has won an order to supply a Mediterranean sea port with 18 MoorMaster automated mooring units for a container handling application.

Cavotec will offer the exposed container berth on the Mediterranean Sea productivity and utilisation benefits. The engineering company will engineer, manufacture, install and commission 18 MoorMaster MM200C units.

It's another milestone contract for the company following a 2011 order of 24 MM200C units to another Mediterranean port which are currently being delivered.

Juergen Strommer, managing director, 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."

Mr Strommer added: "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.”

Cavotec says that the units eliminate the need for conventional mooring lines, reduce costs and are ecologically sustainable. This order marks the third location where the MM200C units are being used.
