Swedish headquartered Trelleborg’s marine systems operation has increased its range of Quick Release Hooks (QRHs) with the addition of the ReadyMoor range, a standardised solution that provides the fastest lead time for commercial applications, where bespoke solutions are not required.

According to Trelleborg, the ReadyMoor range provides a solution that offers the safety and operational benefits of QRHs, whilst passing on commercial benefits to the customer. The series is available with average delivery of just 12 weeks, the time it takes to assemble, test and ship the product.

Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg’s marine operation, told Maritime Journal: “Trelleborg’s QRHs have provided countless facilities with the customised, high performance solutions needed to optimise their docking and mooring operations.

“We took the extensive knowledge and expertise gained through our SmartMoor range and applied it to develop a streamlined product for customers with less complex requirements, such as those in commercial ports and harbors. With the ReadyMoor range of QRHs, we now have the ideal solution.”

The compact design of the new range ensures a small installation footprint, minimizing deck space usage and installation costs.

The new hook also reduces maintenance requirements through a single stage locking mechanism, which has fewer moving parts and that is available in double or triple hook units with a Safe Working Load (SWL) from 50 tonnes to 150 tonnes. Models with an SWL of 60 tonnes and higher are also available with integral capstans, if required.

The marine operation of Trelleborg Infrastructure & Construction, manufactures and installs bespoke fender systems, docking and mooring equipment, oil and gas transfer technology and vessel efficiency technology for marine environments all over the world.
