MoorMaster for Fjord 1

Cavotec has announced a new order for two of its next generation NxG vacuum mooring systems from Norwegian ferry operator Fjord 1. “The new systems will be used with a new-build, zero-emission vessel to reduce energy consumption in port. The customer has also signed a long-term service agreement for the operator’s existing MoorMaster vacuum mooring systems and e-vessel charging units,” Cavotec said.


“This order again shows the important role our innovative MoorMaster technology plays in the decarbonisation of the maritime sector. Fast mooring with MoorMaster increases energy efficiency in port and fundamentally improves the end-to-end design of electric ferry operation,” said Patrick Mares, President Cavotec Ports & Maritime.


One of the MoorMaster NxG systems will be installed at a berth in Sølsnes and one at Åfarnes, both in western Norway. The systems will moor and release a new-build electric passenger and vehicle ferry 54 times each day. The DNV GL-classed ferry will have a capacity for 299 passengers and 120 vehicles. The systems will be installed and commissioned in 2023.


The separate service contract is a three-year agreement for existing MoorMaster vacuum mooring systems and e-vessel charging units from Cavotec. It covers some 70 assets "and will help the customer maximise the availability of all its systems,” Cavotec said.
