Dry Cargo

Dry cargo shipping companies are facing unprecedented levels of competitiveness. With commodity markets for coal, grain, steel products, ore and other loose form products under increasing cost pressure, dry cargo carriers must operate as efficiently as possible. Optimising mooring operations is an important factor in achieving efficient loading and unloading – reducing unnecessary and costly delays and additional port charges.  
 

Lankhorst Ropes offers a one-stop shop for a broad range of fibre and steel wire ropes for hoisting, luffing and mooring for dry cargo vessels from small vessels (20,000 DWT) through new Panamax (120,000 DWT) and up to Chinamax (400,000 DWT). They offer outstanding service life performance and, as a result, low total cost of ownership.

Ease of handling, speed of mooring and rope safety are the trademark of Lankhorst Ropes

Ease of handling, speed of mooring and rope safety are the trademark of Lankhorst Ropes. Manufactured in the EU using the latest in-house yarn extrusion and rope production techniques, the rope construction is optimised to suit the application and prevailing mooring conditions. All Lankhorst ropes are manufactured from premium materials with full rope traceability. Moreover, as a leading rope manufacturer we work closely with our suppliers such as DSM Dyneema, to ensure the highest quality standards from raw materials, through manufacture, delivery and installation of the finished rope.

Consistent rope performance is vital during mooring and towing. Using Lankhorst ropes, vessel operators are assured that their ropes are made with the greatest materials consistency to provide the same elongation, and service life, enabling more efficient rope management and supply through Lankhorst Ropes’ extensive global stock point network. In this way, the risk of mixed mooring is eliminated.

 

Lankhorst has a dedicated fibre rope R&D centre providing the technical know-how needed to produce award-winning rope innovations in rope handling and safety. In-built anti-snap back designs reduce the risks to crew, as does the A3 splice that makes rope handling easier and safer during mooring and towing.
