Let’s compare A and B. The future vs. the past. Rope-less automated mooring vs. traditional mooring. Metal and electricity vs. ropes, sweat, and stress.
A) In one case, a stevedore at the port terminal or a captain on the bridge of a vessel pushes a button to extend the arms of the rope-less automated mooring. Each arm grasps the vessel hull, securing it to the berth. When the vessel must depart, the stevedore or a captain pushes a different button, and the arms retract, releasing the vessel. Not much of a risk, isn’t it? The arms are made of low alloy steel grade and support temperatures of -15°C to +50°C (for operation) and -40°C to +70°C (when in storage). Each unit is individually proof load tested using a specially designed test rig. Pretty strong, isn’t it?
