Our products can be delivered separately or with installation so that they are immediately operational.

Customised solutions

With our own modern CNC lathes and milling machines, we can also quickly find customised solutions for repairs. Our professionals, many of whom have been with Van Wijk for many years, have the experience to solve the most difficult challenges. In addition to repairs and maintenance on all Van Wijk products of our own production and comparable products from other suppliers, all ship repairs above the waterline are part of our proposition. Ironwork on decks, flat or hull? Our professionals know how to deal with it. Construction work is quickly done by our craftsmen. We are also well versed in hydraulics and electricity. Because we work closely with many maritime companies, we can also carry out specific repairs on your ship. Ship repairs can be necessitated by wear and tear, age or damage. On behalf of your insurance company, we can provide an estimate of the cost of damage or a quotation. We can do a refit of parts and install new parts or machinery. Technical installations, ship’s engines and ship’s accessories; we can do and organise all your repairs and maintenance for you, with or without our network.

For contractor companies, we provide repair and maintenance services for both working vessels and, for example, winches, bow thrusters, loading cranes and spud poles.

Preventive maintenance can save you a lot of unnecessary downtime. We like to help you come up with the best solutions. We do a lot of expert inspections and we carry out tests with all recognised inspection institutes.

Van Wijk has a flexible, dynamic approach and is always ready to find a suitable solution for every problem. Whether it concerns repairs, replacements, adaptations or completely new installations, at Van Wijk you will find the service and the corresponding expertise – developed for over than 60 years – within one company.
