IHC Mining Joins World Ocean Council

IHC Mining, part of Royal IHC (IHC), has become a member of the World Ocean Council (WOC) to add to the growing global industry alliance for “corporate ocean responsibility”.

As a leader in responsible dredging and offshore mining activities, IHC Mining is expanding its scope as one of the pioneers in deep-sea mining with initiatives such as this.

Using its extensive mining and ocean expertise, IHC Mining is working towards reaching deepsea mineral deposits. This is being achieved with the support of a dedicated research and development program, as well as through its position as a leader of the EU Blue Mining project.

It is also demonstrating its commitment to understanding and addressing the environmental aspects of seabed mining through its participation in the EU Midas Project and other similar programs.

Henk van Muijen, IHC Mining’s Managing Director, said: “With activities such as the recent Business Forum on Ocean Policy and Planning, it is creating valuable opportunities for ocean industry collaboration and leadership on issues critical to the future of seabed mining.”

Rodney Norman, IHC Deep Sea Mining Director, added: “The WOC provides a unique forum that enables IHC Mining to work with other ocean industries on key challenges and opportunities related to the responsible, science-based development of ocean resources.”
