ShoreTension has successfully delivered a mooring system to the Port of Gisborne in New Zealand.
The ShoreTension dynamic mooring system generates a constant tension on mooring lines and dampens down the motion of the vessel.
Eastland Port general manager Andrew Gaddum says the investment is safety driven.
“There are significant risks associated with mooring and maintaining vessels in port during adverse weather and when there are long-period waves. Disruptive wave patterns in the harbour can have the effect of moving ships alongside the port and once ships start moving the momentum is extremely dangerous for staff, the vessel and shoreside infrastructure.”
