This will enable mooring operations to be undertaken without human intervention and supports effective operation of the fully electric, zero emission vessel.

 

The automated mooring system is scheduled to be delivered during H2 2019.

 

"It is critical for Kongsberg to work with world-class partners and we are therefore very pleased to specify the MacGregor automated mooring solution for the Yara Birkeland container ship," says Bård Bjørløw, EVP Global Sales & Marketing, Kongsberg Maritime.

 

"We worked very closely with Kongsberg to identify the most suitable mooring solution and are proud to have developed an innovative, fully electrical system which increases safety and eco-efficiency compared with conventional mooring operations," says Høye Høyesen, Vice President, Advanced Offshore Solutions, MacGregor.

 

Kalmar, also part of Cargotec, previously announced that it will provide the autonomous loading and unloading solution for YARA BIRKELAND, as well as transportation between the fertiliser production facilities and the quay.

 

YARA BIRKELAND will reduce emissions and improve road safety by removing up to 40,000 truck journeys annually in a densely populated area of Norway. The container ship will transport fertiliser from Yara’s Porsgrunn plant via inland waterways to the deep sea ports of Larvik and Brevik, a journey of 31 nautical miles.
