Maritime services

From experience, the transhipment of heavy loads onto installation vessels is extremely time-critical. Our logistics experts & nautical specialists will plan & supervise for you all harbour dockings of your fleet of work boats & installation vessels. This includes consideration & integration of all the interfaces involved, from the officers of vessels, port authorities & terminal operators to the shipping agents & customs authorities.

On-hire survey, suitability inspection & official registration of vessels
Our marine team is comprised of captains and nautical experts with many years of experience in the fields of offshore & heavy lifting. They are familiar with the special demands on vessels for offshore work and check these as part of the project registration according to IMCA standards. Further, our marine department also takes responsibility for the official registration of vessels with the German Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH).

For chartering new vessels, we carry out an on-hire survey on your behalf. This focuses on the completeness & validity of vessel’s papers, determining the stocks of bunkers & lubricants as well as a visual inspection of all marine safety-related equipment.

Traffic control vesselWe provide you with a seagoing traffic control vessel and crew for your construction site, which can operate for at least eight weeks at a time in and around the construction area before returning to harbour.

CustomsThe majority of offshore projects are carried out exclusively within the economic zone, but are legally beyond the country’s border. For this reason, all massive components, but as well spare parts, grease & tools that exceed a certain value, are liable for customs duty. Our specially trained personnel are happy to organise all the internal & external customs processes for you as well as handle all the export & import declarations on your behalf.
