Solar power systems for mooring buoys (CBM)

A Conventional Buoy Mooring (CBM) system allows safe mooring of a vessel which is positioned between the buoys.

For mooring buoys, our solar power system is used for different applications, for example to feed the automatic release system, the navigation aid, the AIS transmitter or work lights for these mooring buoys. The robust solar power system is designed for the hardest weather conditions like sea spray and heavy wind. We are able to supply ATEX zone 1 and ATEX zone 2 equipment as well.

The system can be installed stand-alone or in combination with our quick release mooring hooks and telemetry system. Our advanced telemetry system controls the system remotely. Furthermore our systems can be equipped with data loggers connected with GPRS, LoRa or UHF. It shows real-time parameters from all equipment on the buoy.

Benefits of using our solar power systems on mooring buoys:

  • Guaranteed availability of power
  • Low maintenance
  • Intrinsic safety
  • Remote monitoring
  • Environmental contribution
  • Reduction of energy costs

Solar systems for mooring buoys South America

For a customer in South America, we designed, engineered and produced fourteen solar systems for mooring buoys. Each mooring buoy contains two quick release mooring hooks with remote release and load monitoring systems. Besides, a wireless communication system has been installed for the communication between the buoy and the onshore control room.

The solar power systems are installed to power remote release, the load monitoring system and a bird dispersal system.

Solar powered mini capstans

We engineer and manufacture custom designed capstans in any shape and size. For this project we were asked to provide a winching solution for a remote and powerless area. Our off grid solar powered system provides the required energy for a 1.5kW capstan, giving it a hauling speed of ±15m/min and a running pull capacity of 500kg!

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.
