At the end of last year, Straatman received a great order from a leading French civil contractor for the supply, commissioning and start-up of twenty four double 75 T Quick Release Mooring units which will be installed on three newly constructed ferry berths in Calais, France.
The system required remote operated hook release control stations mounted near each Quick Release Hook unit. Additionally, to double the release function from the Berth Control Room, three desk type remote control panels were included. These panels have individual hook release push buttons together with Quick Release Hook status indicators that indicate released or closed.
The delivery of this order was split over three batches. The first batch was delivered end of last year, the second batch end of July 2020. The last batch, that consisted of fourteen units, was dispatched end of August 2020.
