Meet Alphatron, ShoreTension and Hoenderop at Offshore Energy

13 September 2016

Alphatron Marine, ShoreTension and Hoenderop are pleased to welcome you to the Offshore Energy exhibition in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Three companies who have a long standing working relationship, each with their very own expertise and quality. Having the same core philosophy to increase the safety of lives offshore and onshore, it was a logical decision to present our products and solutions on a joint stand at the Offshore Energy 2016.

Alphatron Marine, headquarted in Rotterdam, was founded in 1989 and currently employs about 360 people worldwide. As a turnkey navigation and communication system integrator we offer a full range of solutions including standard or custom design bridges. Nearly ten years ago the maritime world became familiar with the AlphaBridge concept, introducing a compact, modular bridge solution based on standard control panels in a simple design. Alphatron Marine designs and delivers with the principle that our bridge technology should make bridge operation easier. The ergonomic design of our AlphaBridge enables intuitive, comfortable operation and further enhances the safety of the vessel. ShoreTension® is a system for safer mooring of sea-going ships that is as convenient as it is revolutionary. ShoreTension®, a cylindrical device, can be flexibly used in any port at terminals where containers, general cargo and/or bulk are handled. With ShoreTension®, ships of any size can be firmly anchored to the quay. ShoreTension® significantly reduces movement caused by strong winds, currents, swell or passing ships. With the traditional mooring method using mooring lines on bollards, this movement is always present. In extreme conditions, the tremendous pressure this exerts on the ship can cause the mooring lines to snap with potentially serious consequences. As ports have experienced in the past, this is definitely a realistic risk. ShoreTension® mitigates this risk significantly. Ships are moored to the quay much sturdier and therefore much safer. Hoenderop was founded close to 40 years ago by Paul Hoenderop who started by selling parts from his father’s garage and growing to become a market leader in the field of ship's supplies for the commercial shipping, with over 350,000 items always in stock. The most important core values of Hoenderop BV are having always a wide range stock available and a true customer focus in being the most reliable partner in every way, from the best possible service and competitive market pricing. These principles form the backbone of our company and are being constantly evaluated to bring these to an even higher level in the future. Meet us at stand 5.001 in hall 5
