Ship-to-ship

The safety and efficiency benefits that MoorMaster™ automated mooring brings to mooring vessels to the quay, are also possible in ship-to-ship applications. MoorMaster™ simplifies ship-to-ship mooring, making the process faster, safer, and more efficient.

Mooring vessels together introduces additional challenges not encountered when mooring a vessel to a berth, often due to the lack of shelter from the elements. With MoorMaster automated mooring, mooring times are reduced to less than one minute. Mooring is completely safe and remains safe for personnel and vessels for the duration of the mooring.

Benefits

  • Fast mooring in less than a minute
  • Reduced relative vessel motion increases productivity of transfer operations
  • Safe operations with no hazardous rope-handling activities

Challenge

  • Customer intent on developing a floating jetty-less platform for LNG transfer
  • Due to size difference between the platform and ship, rope mooring would not be capable of keeping a stable distance between the vessels
  • Deploying ropes would have been time consuming and exposed staff to significant health and safety risk


Solution

  • ATEX and CLASS certified MoorMaster™️ multi-unit system installed on the movable platform


Key benefits

  • Trials have shown that the system works considerably more efficiently than conventional mooring methods
  • Personnel safety improved
  • Mooring time dramatically reduced
  • Status of mooring known at all times during LNG-transfer
