Research and development

Research and development has been key to our success.  Since the start in the early 1960’ies, we have looked at ways of making our business more efficient. 

We were early movers when it came to installing gantry cranes on our vessels. Over the years we have always looked for new improvements. 

With the sustainability challenges the world face, this has become even more important. Sustainable Development Goal number nine, “Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure” is among the goals we have chosen. That is why we try to engage in as many research and development projects as possible.

Finding new solutions has never been about ourselves. We think these solutions should be shared. So we try to partner up with other companies, research institutions, governmental institutions etc.
