Wilhelmsen's Revolutionary Snap Back Arrestor
In development for close to seven years, the Timm Snap Back Arrestor, is a genuine market first.
Why did we create the Snap Back Arrestor?
Did you know that when a mooring line snaps, it moves at up to 800 kilometres an hour? As a result, vessel mooring remains one of the most dangerous tasks crew and port workers can undertake. Snap back accounts for a staggering 60% of mooring accidents, according to the UK P&I club, with a sobering 1 in 7 of those accidents resulting in fatalities. This cannot, and should not continue.
It is why we have spent considerable time, almost seven years, and resources to develop the Snap Back Arrestor (SBA).
