Deck and Mooring
Mooring
Quick release mooring hooks enable ship mooring lines
to be secured safely and with minimum effort. Standard
hooks available are single, double, triple, quadruple,
double back to back and quadruple back to back. Safe
working loads vary from 30 tonnes to 200 tonnes, with
proof loads of up to 1.5 times the safe working load.
Quick Release Mooring Hooks
Features:
Each hook can be released independently of each other,
whether slack or under full working load
A two step activity to release the hooks prevents accidental
release
Hooks move on vertical and horizontal planes
Shock absorbing impact blocks are installed to neutralise
the energy imparted into the system at quick release so as
to minimise the impact force
Manual operation of the hook is possible with a maximum
effort of 15/ 30kg at full working load limit
The release mechanism is spring load assisted so the
hawser can be released at very low loads
Each hook is designed to accept a load monitoring pin at a
later stage so it can be upgraded to provide mooring load
monitoring
All operating mechanisms are installed within the side
plates, which provides as much mechanical protection as
possible to the release components
Can be free standing or buoy mounted and are supplied
with standard or pelican hooks
The hooks can be fitted with sensors to provide the status of
the hook (open or closed, pressure indication in either
hydraulic or pneumatic release systems, and oil level in
hydraulic systems)
Has ATEX certification for Zone 1 & 2 hazardous areas
Recommended by OCIMF and SIGTTO
