Cavotec said it has been awarded an order for two MoorMaster™ MM400 units that will be used in conjunction with a new-build LNG passenger (and vehicle) ferry on a frequent service between Hov, in Jutland, and Saelvig, located on the west coast of the island of Samsoe in Danmark. The order includes installation and commissioning.
The units will securely hold the vessel in place during mooring operations in wind speeds of more than 20m/s, and automatically adjust the position of the vessel according to tidal variations.
The units will also enable more streamlined, efficient operations, and improve safety for those on board the vessel and those onshore.
