Port Strategy: Salalah to get automated mooring additions Salalah to get automated mooring additions
Industry Database

Oman has stamped its seal of approval on vacuum-based automated mooring systems with an order for 12 Cavotec units for the Port of Salalah.

Testament to the port's satisfaction with the system, the new units will join the original set installed at Salalah in 2004.

Cavotec claims that the automated units - which counteract vessel surges in port caused by changes in wave dynamics - are faster and safer than traditional mooring techniques.
