When a 27,000 ton container ship broke free of its moorings and ruptured an oil pipeline during a storm in the Port of Rotterdam, the KRVE, the authority responsible for mooring in the Port, set up ShoreTension to explore solutions. Working as a four-way partnership, ShoreTension, suppliers of commercial ship equipment Hoenderop BV, Gleistein Ropes and DSM joined forces to deliver KRVE's ShoreTension?, a revolutionary vessel mooring system that improves operational efficiency, speed, worker safety and environmental impact.
Declarations and transparency
Making carbon footprint declarations available to customers, as well as their customers in turn, provides transparency with respect to emissions and aids in efforts by DSM’s customers to reduce carbon emissions across their own value chain. For example, DSM Engineering Plastics makes the carbon footprint of a number of main compounds available in a database that customers can access.
