We are more than projects, we are MARITIME stories
The story starts in 1978 when I started my graduation studies at Wijsmuller Transport BV in Ijmuiden. This was the beginning of transport with semisubmersible heavy lift vessels of the super servant class. Ever since I stayed in this industry and, as of 1986, as a 29 years old engineer, started HMC BV.
Safety has always been a key factor in our operations, as well as reducing Greenhouse Gas exhaust by smart voyage planning. We are awarded European support under the framework “Kansen voor West” for the coming 3 year, where we in concert with Hermess can further develop our plans to improve safety and reduce the Greenhous Gas pressure on the environment. The “Onderzoeksraad voor Veiligheid” (Dutch Research Council for Safety”) stated in 2016 that the balance between the economy and safety must be restored.
We as HMC took the challenge and we started to deploy our safety systems in maritime operations in which we were involved. The European support is the proof that our plans are welcomed and supported. The project can look forward to support from the Universities in Amsterdam and Delft.
