SUPPLIER NEWS - Mammoet in Schiedam recently became the world’s first user of Green Pin Tycan® Chain for lifting.

This historic event was attended by senior executives from both companies including Wouter van Noort, Managing Director Mammoet Europe and Russia and Anton van der Zalm, Vice President Research and Development at Van Beest. “At Mammoet, we pride ourselves on having safety of our team as our number one focus. We are therefore always looking for new, innovative solutions to exceed the highest safety standards. Green Pin Tycan® helps us achieve that” commented Wouter van Noort. Anton van der Zalm observes: “We are very excited about bringing our innovative Green Pin Tycan® Chain to market and delighted that world leading companies like Mammoet see the benefits of using it for both lashing and lifting”.

With the sometimes challenging combination of working safely and efficiently, Green Pin Tycan® provides the solution.

Made with Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fibre™ and technically qualified by DNV-GL, it has all the strength and flexibility of a steel chain but is eight times lighter. Its soft touch makes it very kind to the hands and backs of operators and minimizes damage when transporting valuable and often vulnerable cargo. “We are delighted to lead the way with an innovative solution for the lifting industry, which we believe improves both safety and efficiency.

Green Pin Tycan® Chain is so light and easy to use that our team loves to work with it. Combined with its soft touch, we believe Green Pin Tycan® can reduce damage and injuries to cargo and crew alike” commented Brian Steentjes, Manager Planning AE & EMD at Mammoet. “We were first to use Green Pin Tycan® as a lashing chain in 2015 and were very keen to be first again for lifting” added Brian Steentjes.
