We have a long and diverse history of working in the maritime sector. While our acoustic engineers developed silent submarines for the French Navy in the 1980s, our environmental engineers were working with mining companies to control dust emissions during the loading of raw materials at shipping ports. The shipping industry and ports are the lifeline of international trade.
As demand for global freight increases, maritime trade volumes are expected to triple by 2050.While the shipping industry currently accounts for only 2.6% of total greenhouse gas emissions, this number is also set to grow exponentially over the same period, meaning that measuring, controlling and regulating ship emissions has never been more important. Likewise, the expected increases will put greater pressure on the machinery that drives freight loading on the docks, so operators need reassurance that their critical cranes, forklifts and conveyor belt systems will be protected against breakdowns and safety issues.
