The Japanese MOL experiences endowed mooring ropes of sensors

The system affords to know in real time the tension on the cables

The shipowning group Japanese Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) with the compatriots Teijin Limited and Tesac Corporation has started the experimentation of endowed mooring ropes of sensors and a system of visualization of the state of the cables that allows with the members of the crews of the ships to know in real time the tension on the cables of mooring and their resistance.

The project is started on the base of the ascertainment that difficultly the tension on the mooring ropes that connect the ships to the piers and other harbour structures is determined in way taken care of, except in some equipped ports with systems of monitoring of the tension of the cables. Evidencing that the cables can therefore break because the crews of the ships do not adopt effective measures in order to contrast the effect of more intense external forces of previewed because of the bad meteorological and marine conditions and that a visual examination of the cables cannot always identify those damaged or that they deteriotate more fastly of the previewed one even if they are subordinates to the just tension, the partner of the project has emphasized that the breach of the mooring ropes can involve the risk of serious incidents who can cause situations of danger for the crews, the harbour operators of the technical-nautical services and workers and damages to the harbour structures and the ships.

The new type of endowed cables of sensors will be experienced on a portarinfuse of MOL Coastal Shipping.
