Berthing Aid System

The Straatman Berthing Aid System or so-called Docking Aid System is based on the latest laser and LED technology. The laser system will measure the distance from the jetty to the side of the approaching vessel. Besides on a standard PC, all values can be displayed on a large display like distance (Bow and Aft), speed of approaching and angle. Since the display is based on LED technology we are able to show other parameters as well like wind speed, current, waves or other crucial information in order to guarantee a safe mooring.

How does the system work?

A laser system measures the distance from the jetty to the side of the approaching vessel. The measured values are shown on a large display on the jetty and in the control room. Led technology on the screen is developed by our in-house sister company FactoryLab.
