Respond to the shift of leadership when facing accidental pollution.

Following the recent RENA and COSTA CONCORDIA disasters, accidental pollution has become a hot topic for the maritime industry. Public authorities worldwide are more sensitive than ever towards environmental issues. When an incident occurs, removing the threat of pollution has become their first requirement.

As a result, the costs of salvage operations have started to rise beyond all estimates. In a growing number of cases, these costs exceed the USD $70 million threshold, beyond which the re-insurance market then has to intervene.

Make a smart move: turn to FOR Systems to meet these new requirements while keeping control of salvage costs. The media are watching.

Show leadership, go beyond regulation

Some 20,000 large-capacity ships currently navigate the seas without having emergency access to the hazardous products they carry. Managing those risks effectively has finally been achieved. FOR Systems are solutions that can be implemented now.

FOR Systems open a tremendous opportunity for pioneering industry players to show leadership and be covered for the worst case scenarios.
