SUMMARY

Customer Need / Challenge
Due to the changing weather conditions, mooring cable lines undergo wear and tear. A customer wants to ensure all mooring lines for ships or vessels are securely docked at the same loading tension, so that they do not risk the mooring lines to break or cause damage.

Results
The customer was able to verify the tensions to multiple mooring cable lines. Thus, resulting in the security of their ship being safely docked.
