Wet Cargo

Wet cargo shipping companies operate in highly competitive global markets for transportation of non-edible and dangerous liquids, as well as edible non-dangerous liquids. Under increasing cost pressure, wet cargo carriers must operate as efficiently as possible. Optimising mooring and towing 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, mooring and towing for wet cargo vessels from Aframax oil tankers (75,000 - 115,000 DWT) through Suezmax (160,000 DWT) and VLCC (150,000 and 320,000) and up to T-1 supertankers (550,000 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, 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, tested to OCIMF Meg 3/4 recommendations, and offer full rope traceability. Moreover, 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.
