AutoMoor - Trelleborg Marine and Infrastructure

Rope-free automated mooring system


AutoMoor is Trelleborg's rope-free, automated mooring system designed to make your berthing operations smarter, safer and more competitive.

AutoMoor units eliminate mooring lines and are specifically designed to improve operational efficiency and enhance safety levels. Combining new vacuum pad and passive damping technology to rapidly attach to and secure a vessel at berth, the units are suitable for a range of environmental and berthing conditions. 

AutoMoor uses SmartPort technology to connect assets and to continuously monitor all mooring loads acting on the vessel at berth, it also provides live data to the operator to optimize day-to-day port and terminal operations.

Reduces turnaround time for vessels to berth and depart, increasing port throughput


Dampens vessel motions by reducing peak mooring loads due to surge and sway movements. Port operations can continue safely in a greater range of environmental conditions


Decreased reliance on tug boats for berthing and de-berthing reduces waiting and scheduling delays


Decreases port emissions thanks to the reduced time taken to moor the vessel, as ship engine idling is diminished and tug vessel time at berth reduced


Minimizes infrastructure upgrades while increasing berth capacity, by eliminating the need for wharf extensions or mooring dolphin investments for port terminal upgrades

Reduces the effects of passing ships in narrow waterways and the long period wave motions experienced in some ports and harbors, by damping motions of the affected vessel

Removes the need for breakwater infrastructure lowering port and terminal investment requirements

Reduces peak loads resulting in reduced civil requirements
