MoorMaster units hold the 212m Tallink Megastar passenger ferry in perfect position at Port of Helsinki's LJ7 berth.

"The new auto-mooring system will significantly speed up the mooring and unmooring of ships. For local residents, the system also has the benefit of reducing noise and emissions," said the port.

The MoorMaster MM400E15 machines at the LJF berth will moor the new-build, 212m TALLINK MEGASTAR and the TALLINK STAR passenger ferries three times a day each. Mooring of these vessels takes a matter of seconds compared to conventional mooring that would take substantially longer. The introduction of the technology also removes hazardous mooring lines from the mooring process.

The development of West Terminal 2 included the construction of a new berths and a terminal building, passenger bridges and access roads.

The opening ceremony was attended by a large number of guests, and a number of speakers, including Finland's Minster for Foreign Trade and Development, Kai Mykkänen; the CEO of the Port of Helsinki, Kimmo Mäki; the CEO of Eckerö Line, Taru Keronen; and the CEO of Tallink Silja, Margus Schults.

MoorMaste units have completed an estimated 260,000 mooring operations at ferry, bulk and container handling, and lock applications worldwide.
