Cavotec has developed MoorMaster™ automated mooring systems for a wide variety of Ro/Ro and ferry applications that reduce mooring times, thereby allowing more time for passenger and car boarding and disembarking.

Shorter mooring times contribute to reduced emissions at terminals, which are often located close to city centres. At berths subject to challenging tidal and weather conditions, and where space for conventional mooring is restricted, Cavotec automated mooring ensures safe and reliable operations.

MooMaster™ can be combined with our Automatic Plug-in System and shore power solutions to automate the mooring and shore power connection of electric ferries and Ro/Ro vessels.

Automatic Plug-in System



  1. Moor vessels in 30 seconds, detach in 10 seconds. 
  2. Reduced emissions improve air quality in and around terminals.
  3. Fuel savings due to reduced use of thrusters during port stays, and potentially reduced cruise speeds.
  4. Reduced maintenance costs linked to mooring lines, winches and hull paint and coatings.
  5. Reduced fender and seabed maintenance.
  6. Improved personnel safety and reduced onboard labour requirement.
  7. Reduced infrastructure costs due to shorter quays and/or fewer dolphins.
  8. Reliable system, operating in extreme environmental conditions.

“Cavotec’s MoorMaster™ systems represent a major asset for our port developments by speeding up our operations and turnaround times, which in turn, help us improve the reliability and quality of service for the benefit of our customers. This mooring system is a unique and innovative technology that has been adopted by our company in order to support our strategy of integrating more efficient and reliable systems for our ferry services.”
