Let’s show you around

Explore the most important Smart Mooring features below. And if you want a full overview, feel free to request a demo. 

Innovation by design

We see our product development as an ongoing journey with our clients and partners. As a result, we are dedicated to continuously improve our product through user feedback.


Add port data and science to your operational decision

With many stakeholders involved in the port call process there is a need for consistent interpretation of all the available data streams. Smart Mooring combines port data with metocean data and translates that into actionable insights for well-supported operational decisions.


Activate and present berths in our Live port overview and see in a glance where attention is needed

The Live port overview map summarizes the expected safety level of any activated berth in your port via a single marker. A color-coding is used to indicate whether berths are safe, critical or unsafe in the upcoming local metocean conditions. A click on a colored marker in the port overview brings you to a location-specific berth overview.


View the safety prediction at berth in detail. Learn from historic events or anticipate on upcoming situations

Smart Mooring predicts mooring forces and ship motions by combining hydrodynamic calculations and metocean conditions. The software can look back in time as far as the historic records are available. The software can also look days into the future in line with the weather predictions. 

The user can activate vessel classes for various commodities and sizes in Product Level 2. This level makes use of industry standards and RHDHV’s best engineering practice, so the variables available will suffice in many cases. However there may be situations in which a tailor made (client specific) approach is desired. This can be accommodated by upgrading the product level for a specific location to Product Level 3. This level makes use of custom-made variables that are agreed on and (after engineering) made available in the software.



Use historic data to assess the risk of a vessel at berth well before the port call

Smart Mooring uses historic datasets and a real time data feed to build up a record of metocean conditions. These conditions are translated into insights related to the safety of moored vessels at berth. As such, the software will indicate the limiting wind speed and the probability for safe mooring for any combination of berth, vessel and mooring configuration. This allows the user to test different scenario’s and assess risk before taking an operational decision. 


Use the risk-level at berth to define the desired level of intelligence per location.

Smart Mooring has three levels of intelligence, ranging from static analyses based on guidelines to dynamic analysis based on client-specific input.


We are driven by continuous improvement to meet your needs

By listening to your feedback we continuously build and improve our software application to suit your needs.
These are some of the features that are currently under construction:

Berth dimension check
Mooring plans
Asset management

Reach out and we will be happy to tell you more about these features.

If our teams are alerted for unsafe situations of moored ships days in advance, than we can make better informed decisions, quicker – and inform stakeholders in our port.
