New bollards, better mooring options

Tuesday, April 30, 2024 - 12:54 by kristiansand

The ongoing project at our port to enhance the cruise berth includes several key improvements aimed at ensuring safe mooring and operational efficiency for cruise ships throughout the year. Here’s a breakdown of the project:

1. Installation of Three New Bollards:

- Three new bollards are being installed as part of the enhancement project.
- Each bollard is designed to handle up to 250 tons of mooring force.
- Two of these bollards will be located on the east side of the berth.
- The third bollard will be positioned on the west side of the berth.

2. Strategic Placement for Optimal Mooring:

- Placing two bollards on the east side and one on the west side ensures optimal distribution of mooring forces.
- This strategic placement enhances the stability and safety of the vessels during mooring operations.

3. Benefits for Cruise Ships:

- The enhanced mooring capabilities allow cruise ships to safely dock year-round.
- Cruise ships will be able to stay securely moored alongside the berth while remaining connected to shore power.

The project demonstrates a commitment to upgrading port facilities to meet the growing demands of the cruise industry.
These upgrades aim to provide a safe and efficient docking experience for all vessels visiting the port.
