Safer Mooring Ropes
Our Revolutionary Snap Back Arrestor
Innovation never ends
While a rope is still a rope, the evolution of technology and innovation has changed the lens we research and develop mooring solutions. In a new era of mooring safety, we believe that constant innovation can take our mooring solutions to the next level, making them safer and more high performance.
Pushing for safer mooring
When a mooring line snaps, it moves at up to 800km/h. As a result, vessel mooring remains one of the most dangerous tasks crew and port workers can undertake.
Snap back accounts for a staggering 53% of mooring accidents, according to the UK P&I club, with a sobering 1 in 7 of those accidents resulting in fatalities. This cannot and should not continue.
It is why we have spent considerable resources and time, almost seven years, to develop the Snap Back Arrestor.
Safer work environment for crew
To steer the maritime industry towards safer mooring, OCIMF has introduced a series of Mooring Equipment Guidelines, with the latest being the 4th issue, also known simply as OCIMF MEG4.
The industry is now moving towards ‘safe-to-use’ design, with a human-centric focus when it comes to product development. At Wilhelmsen, we innovate our ropes to place top priority on the users, and we take that further by integrating technology to make their jobs easier. Here's how:
