Ecomoor

The next-generation mooring system.

Ecomoor Synthetic Mooring logoEcomoor®, the next-generation of mooring systems, is an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional mooring systems.

More and more marina operators, port authorities and governments around the world are prohibiting chain moorings and requiring more environmentally-friendly moorings (EFMs) to help preserve our natural environment. Ecomoor does not damage the seabed like traditional mooring chains, as the mooring line floats in all marine conditions and environments. This makes it an ideal solution for sensitive regions with corals and seagrass.

Its lightweight makes it very easy to install and maintain. It requires no heavy lifting and handling equipment during installation, reducing transport and installation costs at the same time. Lengths range from 2 up to 20 meters, however, can be extended or connected together to create longer lengths, depending on project requirements. 

Ecomoor can be used for different applications, from navigation buoys and deep moorings, to floating solar structures and aquaculture parks.

Our Aids to Navigation (AtoN) offering is now complete. A full range of marine buoys, marine lanterns and mooring systems, both traditional and ecomoorings, are now available.

FAQ

Just like Environmentally Friendly Moorings (EFMs), Ecomoor is the next-generation of mooring system, designed to have less impact on the seabed than traditional moorings.
1) Lightweight, making it easy and more cost-effective to transport and install. 2) Neutral buoyancy, preventing it from dragging on the seabed, and hence, protecting coral reefs/seagrass. 3) Non-reactive to salt water, so will not corrode. 4) It has less surface area than mooring chains and no abrasion between chain links, reducing maintenance frequency and cost.
Ecomoor can be used for different applications, from navigation buoys and deep moorings, to floating solar structures and aquaculture parks. Ecomoor was recently installed to secure the region's first solar panel farm.
