Automated Ship-Mooring System

Mooring Systems Limited (Mooring) announced an agreement with the Dover Harbour Board for the design and implementation of Mooring’s new QuaySailor series 80 automated mooring system. On successful completion of this project Port of Dover will have the largest fully automated ship-mooring system in the world. The Port is currently constructing two new berths at the cost of £37 million. These berths have been designed to accommodate eight of Mooring’s Series 80 mooring units.

The agreement requires Mooring to complete working drawings for the Series 80 over the next 3 months. Subject to an evaluation by the Port these drawings will lead to the construction and installation of the first Series 80 unit in Dover by December this year. Following successful trials of the initial unit the Dover Harbour Board has agreed to contemplate the supply of five more units. QuaySailor is a fixed shore based generic mooring system built to customers' specifications. It incorporates a pad stepping mode to overcome tidal or cargo variances. Dampening of fore and aft movement is also included. The system has various installation and control options that are offered to suit customer needs. Encrypted radio control ensures operational integrity. The QuaySailor provides a vessel and ship captain with complete autonomy in operations and is designed to suite dedicated bulk terminals and ferry terminals.
