Cavotec, together with group of industrial partners, has made history with the world's first successful testing of a combined wireless induction charging and automated mooring system with a hybrid passenger ferry.
The Port of Helsinki recently held an official opening ceremony for its new West Terminal 2 passenger ferry terminal, where our innovative MoorMaster™ automated mooring system moors large ferries safely, quietly, cleanly and efficiently.
We're delighted to report that our combined automated mooring and shore power system has won the inaugural Innovation of the Year Award at the Electric & Hybrid World Expo 2014.
The world’s first battery-powered ferry was delivered recently, heralding a new era in environmentally responsible shipping. The vessel, which will serve a high-frequency route in Norway, will use our very first combined automated mooring and shore power system.
Cavotec will be at TOC Europe to meet customers who want to know more about our crane electrification, automated mooring, shore power, and connection and charging systems.
Cavotec is to supply its innovative MoorMaster™ automated mooring technology for use with two new-build, fully electrically powered ferries at five berths in Canada’s Great Lakes – the country’s first fully electrical non-cable vessels – highlighting how MoorMaster™ is a key technology for expanding the use of e-vessels.
