Safe mooring solution boosts efficiency

A new safety-focused mooring solution actively dampens vessel motion to increase the range of environmental conditions in which cargo can be transferred and improve throughput.

Launched by Trelleborg’s marine and infrastructure operation, DynaMoor maintains constant tension in mooring lines to dampen vessel movements, reducing the risk of parted lines and eliminating the effect that passing ships and long-period waves have on moored vessels.

Richard Hepworth, president of Trelleborg’s marine and infrastructure operation, said: “A demanding environment requires that users of mooring systems adapt and innovate to ensure efficient and safe solutions.”

Quick berthing process

In addition to enhancing safety by keeping constant tension in mooring lines, DynaMoor minimises ‘snap back’ zones, and reduces the overall amount of wharf furniture required, simplifying day-to-day operations and reducing operational costs.

The system also speeds up the berthing process and minimises workload and manual line handling, improving overall efficiency.

Used with the ship’s mooring lines and winches or able to operate independently, DynaMoor can form part of a complete jetty solution integrated with Trelleborg’s Quick Release Hooks, AutoMoor, Smart Bollards, or be deployed as a separate system.
