The maritime sector is as dynamic as ever. New regulatory requirements, high safety standards, cost
pressure, and increasingly large vessels are just some of the challenges operators are facing today.
Combined with demands for faster port turnarounds, there is increasing pressure to ensure that
mooring operations are as quick, safe, and smooth as possible.
In this environment, there is an industry-wide focus on safety and efficiency in mooring. Through the
creation of Dyneema® SK78, and thanks to its involvement in the development of OCIMF MEG4
guidelines, DSM is playing a key role in enabling the development of mooring lines to meet the
challenges of the modern maritime sector.
