Hands-on training mooring equipment

Upon the initial vessel's arrival, our service engineers revisited the multiple terminals where our mooring equipment was recently installed. Their objective is to ensure the smooth integration of our equipment and to provide comprehensive hands-on training to terminal operators. This direct, onsite training is essential for equipping operators with the knowledge and skills necessary to handle the equipment safely and effectively. By empowering operators to identify and address potential challenges independently, we enhance operational efficiency and reduce reliance on external support. This proactive approach not only fosters a sense of confidence and competence among operators but also contributes to the overall reliability and performance of our mooring systems.

Through diligent oversight and targeted training initiatives, we remain committed to delivering continuous service and support to our clients, ensuring the seamless operation of their terminals.

Our mooring and dredging expertise combined

A couple of years ago we used our expertise to design remotely operated 250 tons quick release hooks, equipped with a solar powered hydraulic powerpack. These are used by a mega cutter suction dredger on their left and right anchor line pontoons, for safe deployment and operation. The lines are used to move the ship in a left-to-right motion, sweeping their dredging work along the sea or river bed.
