Mammoet signed an agreement to join the world’s first port and maritime industry start-up accelerator, PortXL, said a press release.

This partnership enables Mammoet to collaborate with established businesses and start-ups active in the maritime sector – working in energy, ports, refineries, shipping and logistics – in an atmosphere of creativity, collaboration and a shared determination to make positive change within the industry.

According to the release, experts from Mammoet will provide specialist support to entrepreneurs and innovative thinkers. Likewise, existing initiatives within Mammoet will benefit from the input of external specialists and entrepreneurs. By opening up channels for mutually-beneficial collaboration, the PortXL platform provides a catalyst for growth for Mammoet and the maritime sector as a whole.

“We are honoured to welcome Mammoet among our partners and we hope that their invaluable contribution and expertise will help lift our programme towards new heights,” says PortXL Managing Director, Mare Straetmans.

“We are proud to join such a great platform as PortXL,” says Kirsten Bradley, Director of Business Development at Mammoet Europe. “It will undoubtedly inspire us to develop further innovative solutions and bring new technologies and ideas to our business."

Mammoet’s involvement with PortXL’s activities starts immediately. PortXL is located in Rotterdam, Singapore and Antwerp, but technological breakthroughs will be sought from around the world, with Mammoet offering technical expertise, knowledgeable guidance and industry insight to develop the most exciting new ideas into the game-changing solutions of the future.
