In 2019 we finished commissioning the project for Solar Power Systems and Quick Release Mooring Hooks for the Port of Amsterdam. Because safety is top priority for this port, they decided to sign a service and maintenance contract for these hooks and solar systems. Every 3 months our service engineers will inspect and service all systems and last month we performed the first maintenance at this location.Read more
Unloading petroleum from a ship to the oil handling storage facility onshore is a complicated process. To be able to do this, the ship can for example moor offshore and the oil can be transferred through pipelines between the offshore mooring facility and the onshore storage terminal.Read more

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.Read more
