Dutch Marine Service is owned by Mark van Helden and is specialised in the maritime industry.
We offer a 24-hours service, 7 days a week for the following services at any desired location: general maintenance and (emergency) repairs, workboat rentals, towage, recovery, survey work, thickness measurement, pre-purchase inspection and 24-hours mobile service on the water.
We deal with two types of recovery.
Sunken object. In this case we will perform a preliminary survey to assess the situation and the work that is needed. You will then receive an offer for recovery. If this offer is accepted we will then proceed to recovering the vessel. A further survey will be carried out to assess the extent of damage to structures, equipment and engines and we will discuss a plan to repair the vessel.
We also offer help in an emergency situation. Sometimes the vessel can be rescued by using professional pumps to empty the object. In other cases we will use our work ship to keep the object afloat. We can then make temporary repairs to the source of flooding after which the object can be taken under tow to a dry dock to do further repairs. If necessary we offer assistance in insurance matters.
