Line Handling is a service Briggs Marine provides to clients to ensure safe berthing and transit in and out of terminals, ports and harbours including locked in areas.
With safety at the heart of everything we do, Briggs Marine staff undergo rigorous training and follow strict safety standards to minimise risk and perform the task safely. Our 24hr management ensures efficiency for the port where there may be many shipping movements to accommodate around the clock.
What this means for our clients
Working in partnership with our clients, Briggs Marine’s vessel mooring and line handling service is provided to busy ports, letting our clients focus on the core operations of their business.
By outsourcing line handling and mooring requirements to Briggs Marine, clients such as multi-use ports can relax, safe in the knowledge that demands can be met even during the busiest periods.
Flexibility and skill
Our Line Handling and Mooring operatives are trained to conduct line handling both from ashore via the quayside and also through use of line handling vessels where lines are required to be secured to isolated mooring dolphins.
Learning how to provide safe mooring operations forms only one part of our employee’s training. Investing in our employees, Briggs Marine provides thorough training courses including, but not limited to, sea survival, first aid, rope & wire characteristics and VHF radio training.
Provision of highly skilled and trained mooring operatives is critical for the smooth running of a port but this is just one element of a wider suite of services that we can provide to Ports, Harbours and Terminals.
