Marine Snapback Events

21 March 2022

Snapback is a life-threatening event in ports where ship stowages break under huge loads and snap back like rubber bands.

Holmes Solutions worked with Geobrugg and BHP, a global mining company, to recreate and better understand snapback events. The results have shown that our fences protect lives. 

This project uses our knowledge of natural hazard protection, motorsport safety and industrial impact protection. For the complete story and the final solution watch this video.

A big thank you to Holmes and BHP for the pragmatic, solution-oriented and therefore successful cooperation.
