Cavotec will design, supply, commission and service two multi-unit MoorMaster automated mooring systems at Estonia’s Port of Tallinn to boost operational efficiency and reduce emissions.

The systems, to be used at two passenger ferry berths, will moor large Ro/Pax vessels that make several daily crossings between Tallinn and the Finnish capital Helsinki, where MoorMaster systems have been in use since 2016.

“We’re delighted to work with the Port of Tallinn to achieve the safety and operational efficiency improvements that MoorMaster offers; we see this as a result of our continuous investment in our solutions to better meet the challenges our customers face,” said Patrick Mares, president of Cavotec ports & maritime.

MoorMaster is designed to improve safety, reduces environmental impact, and substantially increases operational efficiency by removing conventional mooring lines from the mooring process. This dramatically reduces mooring times, vessel motion, fuel consumption and emissions.

In June, Finland’s Port of Turku confirmed it would install a multi-unit MoorMaster system at the Viking Line ferry berth. Due to be delivered in 2020, the system will moor the 218m long passenger and vehicle ferries Grace, and Glory.
