Cavotec Moormaster for Turku

"MoorMaster is the only proven and widely used automated mooring technology available in the world today and we’re delighted to have been selected for this key project,” says Patrick Mares, President Cavotec Ports & Maritime.

 

“Our customer has chosen MoorMaster as the best technology to improve their operational efficiency while also improving safety and sustainability.”

Cavotec will design, supply, commission and service a multi-unit MoorMaster automated mooring system at the Viking Line berth at the Port of Turku, southwest Finland.

 

The multi-unit Moormaster system for the Port of Turku will will moor Viking Line’s 218m ro-pax vessel, GRACE. Viking’s newbuild ro-pax GLORY is scheduled to make its maiden voyage in 2021 and will also use the system

A similar MoorMaster system (photo above) was installed at the Port of Helsinki in 2016 and has performed some 5,000 moorings to date.

Twenty years after the first system entered service, more than 280 MoorMaster systems have performed some 500,000 moorings at ferry, bulk and container handling ports, as well as lock and ship-to-ship applications worldwide.

 

Last month Cavotec reported a deal with an undisclosed port operator worth €10.3M to equip two container berths with the system. This is due to be operational in early 2020.
