Nemag wins the prestigious IBJ AWARD with the nemaX®

Clamshell grab

For the second time, Nemag has won an award at the annual IBJ Awards in Amsterdam.

The International Bulk Journal rewarded Nemag with the award Innovative Technology Award (category Cargo Handling).

Riny Stoutjesdijk, Sales Manager at Nemag: “We are very proud to be able to contribute to the industry to make it more efficient with innovative products and to get rewarded for it.”

The winning of Nemag is the outcome of intensive research and effort, which has resulted in the new, unique and innovative grab type NemaX®. “We worked together with the Technical University Delft and a selected group of our clients to make this happen. Winning this award is an achievement for all parties involved”, says Riny Stoutjesdijk. With NemaX®, Nemag launched the newest generation of grabs. The grab for iron ore has a 10% higher production than all comparable clamshell grabs, is way stronger and has the lowest maintenance cost ever.

The IBJ Awards event is hosted by International Bulk Journal, the leading magazine for the Dry Bulk Handling Industry worldwide. All the winners of the awards were announced at a spectacular gala dinner on 13th November at the Beurs Van Berlage, Amsterdam

IBJ Awards salutes excellence in bulk shipping and cargo handling and there has been a high response to this year’s call for entries. There have been more entrants than ever to the IBJ Awards 2017. This made this one of the most difficult years for the independent panel of judges of IBJ.
