Described by the company as “the only proven and widely used automated mooring technology available in the world today”, the system is scheduled to arrive at the facility in 2020.

As part of its deal with Turku, Cavotec will design, supply, commission and service a multi-unit MoorMaster system for a 218-metre-long berth.

The system offers a number of benefits according to Cavotec, including improved levels of safety, reduced environmental impact and an increase in operational efficiency, MoorMaster removing conventional mooring lines from the mooring process to “dramatically” reduce mooring times.
