Choosing the ideal rope for the vessel type and application is key to achieving a long service life. Using a combination of experience, knowledge from a range of applications and residual rope strength testing, Lankhorst works with operators to find the rope that best serves their needs. In addition, we provide training and ‘Through Life’ support to maximise a rope’s service life. In this way, we can reduce the frequency of rope replacement, and cut rope management costs and the rope’s impact on the environment.
Lankhorst Ropes is committed to sustainability in its products and operations, conserving energy and natural resources wherever possible. Once a rope has reached the end of its service life, we believe it can still be useful. Inland shipping fibre ropes can be recycled into moulded products such as plastic poles and planks and furniture for gardens and parks.
For inland shipping companies, Lankhorst Ropes offers the most comprehensive range of fibre and steel wire ropes, technical know-how, training and ‘Through Life’ support – we look forward to working with you.
