HAROPA mooring

HAROPA boatmen can adapt to any type of mooring by:

  • The specifics of each position,  
  • The different mooring lines (nylon and steel wires), 
  • The tidal range (according to tidal variations) and different ships. 

The boatmen constantly work in close collaboration with the harbour master’s office, piloting and towing in order to prevent and anticipate any situation related to the maritime sector.
