Cavotec deployed its MoorMaster technology for Dutch private ferry company TESO. The vacuum-based automated mooring technology eliminates the need for conventional mooring lines. Remote-controlled vacuum pads can be mounted to the quayside or on pontoons for easy mooring and release. The technology is currently in use by bulk carriers, container ships, and passenger ferries. Cavotec is interested in bringing the technology to the offshore oil & gas industry.
