Sustainability means ‘the quality of non being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance’. But in practice, this word used most of the time in an economic interest in state of an ecological interest.

This results in high investments to place more sustainable systems, but how sustainable are those systems? How you manage this system?

Sustainablility is a combination between awareness and competentions.

In dredging industy it’s important to get insight of the performence:

  • During design of a vessel
  • During operations of the vessel
  • During operations on a project.

Therefore, HAL Maritiem and several other companies developed a ship monitoring and maintenance system to get insight into the proces to be more sustainable.

Because: Data is the new oil!!
