Scandinavian ports choose Cavotec’s automated mooring system

The Switzerland-headquartered cleantech company, Cavotec has agreed with two Scandinavian ports for installing its automated mooring system.

One order for MoorMaster™ NxG system was made by the Port of Kapellskär in Sweden, owned by Port of Stockholm, which is the first in the country, and the second one by the Port of Naantali in Finland, which is the fourth MoorMaster installation in the country.

The two multi-unit systems incorporate the latest generation MoorMaster, the NxG, and will be installed at either end of a major passenger and vehicle ferry service, at the two ports.

The systems will moor and release Finnlines’ existing Ro/Pax ferries as well as two 235 meter-long Superstar Ro/Pax ferries currently under construction. The vessels will call at each port twice daily.

The MoorMaster systems will enable rapid turnaround times for the two vessels, making it possible for them to cruise slower at sea, thereby reducing CO2 emissions by up to 5,000 tonnes per year, according to a statement.

Furthermore, by replacing hazardous conventional mooring lines with remote controlled vacuum pads, the systems will also create a step-change in safety for shoreside and ship personnel.

MoorMaster is used in bulk, container handling, lock, roll-on/roll-off, and ship-to-ship applications worldwide.

Cavotec will manufacture, install, and commission the systems, which are scheduled to enter service in 2023.
