Cavotec’s dual mooring solution
Port systems specialist Cavotec is to integrate its automated mooring technology with its Alternative Maritime Power electrical supply systems for two ferry berths in western Norway.
The unique product will service the world’s first fully battery-powered ferries.
The MoorMaster units will be operated by Cavotec hand-held radio remote controls by the ship’s captain from the bridge of the vessel. The system will signal to the AMP unit when the ship is secure, and a laser sensor will then guide the AMP connector to a hatch in the side of the vessel, connect to the ship’s battery and start charging.
In related news, Cavotec is also celebrating the first MoorMaster bulk handling application in Europe with an order for 18 units for international minerals group LKAB’s new iron ore berth in Narvik, northern Norway.
Part of an order of “substantial financial value”, the units will moor capesize bulk carriers of up to 185,000 dwt.
