We are the most advanced company in the design and manufacture of quick release mooring hooks for the mooring of oil tankers in port terminals.
Our products are well known in the market for their solid designs and long life, being available with different options, such as integrated winch, monitoring system and automatic release system (local and remote).
We offer design, manufacturing, testing, installation and maintenance services for quick release mooring hooks.
Standard versions of quick release hooks are capable of safely handling working loads from 40 to 200 metric tons and units can be supplied in single, double, triple, quadruple or sextuple hook configurations. They are capable of operating within 180° horizontally and 45° vertically.
Resetting the mooring hook to operational status requires only a simple action, even at full safe working load.
With the Mooring Load Monitoring System a close and constant watch is kept on the forces on the mooring lines. Immediate action can be taken in possible slack or overload situations. Load information is displayed in real time and alarms can be preset according to safe working load requirements.
With the data retrieved, the number of mooring lines required for safe mooring can be estimated. This information is accessible through various handheld devices such as PDAs and pagers.
We specialize in tailoring products to customer demands. We also do revamping of existing docks. Products can be customized for low temperature environments, coal and iron ore applications.
In case of emergency, you can release the hooks remotely by remote control. With the remote control system the hooks can be released individually or simultaneously. Indications of open or closed hooks can be transmitted to the remote control panel or displayed in our application software.
We offer two remote control systems:
Both systems are operated by a remote control panel. There are several configurations inside and outside, including push button panels, virtual panels on the computer screen and ATEX certified panels. These panels are explosion-proof.
