3 x Advantages of Straatman’s solar systems

We started off our solar system solutions around 6 years ago, from the port in Rotterdam (Tweede Maasvlakte). We were working on an assignment for a client and needed power supply for the quick release mooring hooks and capstans. Previously, our client would have applied electricity via cables through the water. However, we knew that these cables are prone to extensive damage as the anchors of passing boats can scrape or break them. As a result, repair costs can increase and tasks are interrupted. Also, placing cables via the seabed is a risk full and expensive operation. To minimize all these risks, our engineers developed a solar system for quick release mooring hooks.

It is Wednesday morning, 9 o’clock. A truck enters the Straatman factory site. The driver gets out and reports to the reception. Our receptionist refers him to the unloading dock at the side of the building. The canvas on cargo space of the truck is pushed aside and we see a number of thick steel plates. They are quickly unloaded with our cranes and immediately labelled with a unique identification number. The journey to become a Quick Release Hook has begun. But getting the steel plates is not just a matter of purchase and delivery. Here you can read how we choose our suppliers.
