The maritime and industrial world is filled with ever changing developments. And those include more than just technology. The various sectors are making giant leaps, especially in the field of safety. And safety is accompanied with increasingly stricter guidelines, standards and certifications for lifting, hoisting and towing.
Our clients have trusted the knowledge and experience of Vlierodam for the last sixty years…and counting. We have a solid understanding of developments in the offshore-, towing-, construction- and windmill industry. Furthermore, we are well versed in the rules and standards that our clients’ materials, equipment and structures need to meet.
Partnerships are important to us – we are in it for the long haul. We use a personal approach and try to put ourselves in our clients’ position. This helps us to reassure them that working with Vlierodam can, in general, evolve into a reliable and long-term relationship. We stand for excellent service, high-quality production and equipment & competent order handling all based on committed employees.
In recent years, the development of wind energy at sea has risen. Project developers often contact us at an early stage. We think with them as to the organisation, the technical requirements and any preconditions for the lifting scope. Our wind turbine lifting equipment are all custom designed. We advise our clients about the best way to handle the hoisting and lifting scope, as well as in setting up a plan of approach.
For example, providing calculations so that the most suitable equipment can be selected for the job. All of this, of course, in accordance with the applicable rules and regulations.
Around the world, towing activities must meet ever stricter requirements. Due to the up-to-date knowledge of our towing specialists we are able to provide our clients with the preliminary calculations to determine suitable towing equipment to meet those requirements. We offer our clients the resources they need to realise the towing activities safely and effectively.
Because safety is such an important aspect within our scope, we carry out daily towing inspections on board of our clients’ vessels worldwide. After inspection we provide full certification & documentation for the vessel and its available equipment.
The world of salvage operations is varied and unpredictable. Whether it’s a urgent removal project or the decommissioning of a wreckage that obstructs shipping or poses a hazard to the environment. At Vlierodam we can provide you with the correct hoisting, lifting and towing equipment. Any time, any place. Naturally, keeping in line with the most recent regulations. Whatever the strength, construction, length or onnection is applicable, Vlierodam guarantees the right solution. And so we have proved that, and more, in supporting such operations.
