VIDEO: Norway's E-Ports to Receive Automated Mooring System

   April 25, 2018 ,   Cruise Industry

Engineering company Cavotec will install and maintain an automated mooring system, called MoorMaster, at e-ferry ports in Norway.

Following firm's stated purpose to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 40%, the country introduced multiple e-ferries (electrically powered ferries) and hybrid vessels, a lot of which will use the automated charging interface and vacuum-based automated mooring technology of Cavotec.

Specifically designed to eliminate the need for conventional mooring lines, MoorMaster system relies on remote-controlled vacuum pads located on the quayside to moor and release e-ferries in seconds, while reducing emissions and noise.

The technology reduces overall capital expenditure and delivers substantial safety and operational benefits.

When it completes the projects, Cavotec will have already equipped with MoorMaster over 40 e-ferry ports in Scandinavia.
