DNV GL has recognized that the heavy lift specialist HANSA HEAVY LIFT complies with the highest standards of energy efficiency and has awarded the company the ISO 50001 certificate. The hand-over took place in the HANSA HEAVY LIFT premises in Hamburg last week. The certification covers both HANSA HEAVY LIFT’s vessels and the company’s operations at shore.
“With an effective energy management system, we ensure we are able to identify our major consumers of energy, set targets for reduction of energy and initiate plans to achieve this,” says Steve Dawson, Director Fleet Management, HANSA HEAVY LIFT. “A decrease in our energy consumption means we are also able to reduce our environmental impact as well as achieving a reduction in energy costs. Our certification to ISO 50001 helps to strengthen our already robust ISO 14001 Environmental Management System,” he adds.
“HANSA HEAVY LIFT has made a strong commitment to energy efficiency and promoting sustainable energy management within their organization, demonstrating that it is committed to sustainable operations,” says Dirk Lange, Key Account Manager at DNV GL – Maritime.
Certification to ISO 50001 shows that an organization has established systems and processes necessary to improve energy performance, including energy efficiency, use and consumption. The standard’s requirements include developing a policy for more efficient use of energy, fixing targets and objectives to meet the policy, using data to better understand and make decisions about energy use and measuring the results. It also requires companies to review how well the policy works and continually improve their energy management.
