Berthing Approach System

Berthing Approach System

The Berthing Approach System aggregates the vital approach data with traffic lights and LED digits.

With this system pilots and marine personnel can make the best decisions for a safe berthing process.
The Berthing Approach System consists of:

  • Large LED Display
  • Eye safe lasers
  • Audio alarms and hand-held devices
  • Traffic light display

The Berthing Approach System increased the safety of jetty and ship. Before and after the berthing process, the Large LED Display shows vital mooring information, such as distance, speed and angle of the approaching vessel. It is high quality handling data, tuned to achieve the best possible accuracy at the fastest speed.
After the vessel is moored and in contact with the fenders, the system monitors the fender deflection & drift-off. When set limits are exceeded, the system generates an alarm.

Large LED Display

Part of the Berthing Approach System is the LED Display. This large display provides data of interest for berthing services to pilots and ship crew. The LED powered digits are clearly visible up to 300 meters during all weather conditions, day and night. The viewing angle both horizontally and vertically is 120 degrees.
The LED display shows the following data:

  • Distance
  • Approaching speed
  • Speed Alarms
  • Berthing Angle

The LED digits are maintenance free and have a long life time. The Large Led Display shows mooring and environmental information, such as data from the weather station and wave, tide & current sensor, next to drift off and fender compression during mooring. The traffic lights are integrated in the large LED display and provide warning alarms.

Eye safe lasers

Part of the Berthing Approach System are two high quality and robust eye safe lasers. These lasers are class 1 in an EExd enclosure. The lasers are suitable for hazardous area zone 1.

Audio alarms and hand-held devices

The iMoor application can be executed on computers in the jetty control room, portable devices like pagers, tablet PCs and laptops for pilots and marine personnel. Carry on board computers, laptops, PDA’s and pagers can display the information with high quality handling data, tuned to achieve the best possible accuracy at the fastest speed.
