How does a mooring hook work?

Straatman’s quick release hooks type GMH are especially designed to guarantee safe and efficient mooring operations at oil, gas, LNG, chemical, iron, coal, and grain jetties. The usage of mooring hooks minimizes damage to the jetties and the environment. Quick release mooring hooks improve the safety and efficiency of mooring operations. Some of the most important features:

  • Each hook is independent of the others and is able to move freely (vertically and horizontally)
  • The configuration of quick release hooks depends on the type of vessel, berth or terminal
  • Possibility for local or remote automatic release
