INSPECTIONS AND PRESERVATION
Regular maintenance is essential for your vessels’ certifications. Volharding Shipyard Werkendam ensures the highest quality for all maintenance projects and the associated processes and certificates.
Our skilled team is on hand to provide expert (preventive and/or necessary) maintenance of your inland barges and small marine vessels. We conduct thorough inspections according to all required standards and regulations. Should repairs be necessary, we will carry these out for you. Clear and honest communication is important to prevent any unwelcome surprises during repairs and routine maintenance. Therefore, we always operate with complete transparency during the entire process, keeping you informed about costs and progress.
We also offer preservation services for your vessel, helping to protect it from wear and prolong its lifespan. The application of an antifouling coating also helps maintain your vessel’s speed and reduces fuel waste.
ABOVE AND BELOW THE WATERLINE
If your vessel sustains damage, we can assist immediately, no matter the severity of the damage. Whether the damage is caused by a collision or while navigating a lock, our team is skilled in carrying out many types of repairs.
Our quay is easily accessible, and we can repair damage both above and below the waterline. From axle and propeller shaft issues to engine and rudder repairs, as well as damage to the ironwork, hull, bow, or stern, we ensure your vessel is repaired and back in operation swiftly.
