Cost-effective and time-saving

Reliable and safe transport solutions

Transporting objects on vessels always requires close consideration of vessel accelerations. Accelerations can typically induce large stresses and cause the ship’s cargo to move, which is potentially dangerous. To counteract vessel accelerations various aspects can be studied and adjusted, such as sea fastening, grillage and load spreaders. The solutions may vary from simple to quire complex.
