We are pleased to announce that this week, we launched a brand new series of Quick Release Hooks (QRHs), designed specifically for smaller and simpler mooring applications, where traditional large and more complex QRHs are not appropriate.
Due to an increase in vessel size and the ongoing need to optimize safety, there has been an increasing demand for load monitoring and remote release functionality to reduce operators’ exposure to danger through controlled release of the mooring lines.
The need for these capabilities in a more compact footprint has largely driven the development of QRH Compact Series, improving the efficiency and safety of mooring operations at commercial ports and wharfs. The new hooks can also be used as a replacement for more traditional bollard applications.
Additionally, we are also committed to our business in the LNG sector and believe many of the features of the new series of hooks will meet the needs of the small-scale LNG market as it evolves.
The Compact Series combines the knowledge of our vastly experienced engineering team with FEA software, providing an optimized solution for less complex and lower rating mooring applications.
The new hook also reduces maintenance requirements through a single stage locking mechanism which has fewer moving parts, and is available in a range of designs including single, double, triple, and quad hooks in capacities up to 50T.
