hatch cover repair and maintenance

Your global partner for repair solutions
and spare parts supply.

Experience, individuality and innovation.

We develop bespoke solutions for nearly every issue related to shipping.

Hatch cover repair, maintenance and inspection.

Core business.

We set standards in the repair and maintenance of hatch covers, in steelwork, as well as in the associated sealing. For this purpose, we have experienced and highly qualified specialists in our team who can draw on a wealth of experience in ship repair. Of course, this also includes work on hydraulic systems and lines.
In addition to supplying hatch cover sealing technology, we can also repair damaged seals by using an industrial vulcanization process to renew the damaged part of the seal. It is even possible to restore the functionality of vacuum seals at no great expense via this method.
Thanks to our special bonding technology, we are also able to repair seals in the field, directly on site. Our repair process can significantly increase the service life of the seals.

All from a single source.

From the order to the final assembly.
From the order to the final assembly.

All from a single source.

Your trust
is our motivation.

Customer-oriented service and quality at the highest level. That is what we stand for – no ifs, ands, or buts.

In addition to our specialisation in the field of repair and maintenance of hatch covers, you can also rely on our expertise and our many years of experience for other services.
Ship repairs

We carry out ship repairs worldwide in the field of steel construction. For this purpose, we have experienced experts such as welding specialists, master metalworkers, mechanical technicians, as well as international welding engineers (IWE) and mechanical engineers.
Our range of services also includes construction supervision, where our technicians ensure the correct and timely completion of their projects.

Welded assemblies & contract welding work

For the creation of welded assemblies, our team comprises experienced welding specialists, and international welding engineers (IWE) with a wealth of experience and craftsmanship to perform the necessary calculations.
The welding work is carried out according to a precise schedule in order to achieve the best possible results in terms of dimensional accuracy and distortion.
In addition to the technologically high-quality impulse welding technology, our range of services also includes MAG/MIG and TIG contract welding work.

Hydraulic systems - Repair and refurbishment

Hochbeanspruchte Hydraulik Anlagen, gerade auch unter den schweren Bedingungen im maritimen Bereich, sind einem großen Verschleiß ausgesetzt. Bei Defekten stellt sich nun oft die Frage: „Austausch oder Reparatur?“

Often, defective cylinders can be reconditioned. To do this, we can re-coat and rework piston rods. After a new seal, nothing stands in the way of reusing them.

In addition to refurbishing cylinders, our offerings also include numerous services in conjunction with hydraulics, including verifying and, if necessary, repairing existing components. Our range of services also comprises the conversion and expansion of existing systems.
