Centering device (AHTS)
Contributing to safer deck operations. Our stop pin has a rotating roller to prevent wear on the stop pin or the line when the mooring line moves against it or when the stop pins are used while spooling.
The centring device is mounted just in forward of the shark jaw. It comprises two arms swinging up from the deck towards each other to catch wires and chains. The function is to move tugger wires or other wires and chain under low tension to within grasping range of the shark jaw.
Operation of towing pins, centring device and shark jaw is remote controlled from the bridge reducing risk to deck crew by avoiding work on unsecured heavily loaded chains or wires. A portable remote control is available for use during service and maintenance work.
