In 2019 we installed a new project consisting of our award winning Solar power systems combined with Quick Release hook units at the Port of Hamburg. Recently we equipped each Quick Release Hook with a load cell, to measure the mooring loads on the separate hooks. The alarms set by the client, visualization and history of the mooring loads are integrated in our software platform. Once a vessel is moored to the dolphin, the actual load value of each load cell will be sent by LoRa communication. The online dashboard shows the data of the loadcells combined for each dolphin.Read more
