Reliable solutions for the shipping industry

Imbema: Hoses
Shipping companies with seagoing vessels such as oil tankers or chemical tankers cannot afford to have any downtime. Activities such as the loading and unloading of oil and chemicals, the bunkering of marine diesel, water and other liquids should not be disrupted. Therefore it is essential for shipping companies to have a reliable hose and coupling system that they can count on.

Difference between profit and loss

Hoses and couplings are used for transporting cargo, bunkering, extracting vapour and transporting (compressed) air, steam or hot water for cleaning tanks. If one of those hoses should fail, an important process will be brought to a standstill. A ship that is unable to be loaded and unloaded or being unable to carry out bunkering can make the difference between profit and loss.

A reliable partner that you can count on

When purchasing hoses and couplings, it is therefore important for shipping companies to have a reliable partner that they can count on. A partner that does more than simply supply a hose. A reliable and innovative partner should offer more than that and do the following, for example:
  • Identify your problem and find the best solution in order to rectify it.
  • Be able to offer sustainable products.
  • Carry out testing and certification on site.
  • Be able to supply quickly.
  • We understand the problems that can arise on board ships.
