Busch Vacuum Technology used in Harbours Throughout the World

Maulburg - Mink vacuum pumps are used to moor ships in harbours throughout the world, as reported recently by the portal "Port Technology".

The company Cavotec manufactures automated vessel mooring systems in Italy. These systems allow large freighters, ferries and container ships to dock without mooring lines or hawsers. The ships are drawn by vacuum to the quay wall, where they are held firmly and securely.

This technology permits a significant reduction in the time taken to moor, and minimises the use of tugs and mooring gangs.
