Wilhelmsen Ships Service supports maintenance products changeover for DEME Group Belgium
July 21, 2010 - Belgian company DEME Group, which operates a fleet of over 80 dredging vessels, another 200 auxiliary vessels and specialised equipment, has appointed Wilhelmsen Ships Services as specialized supplier for maintenance products and technical gases globally.
Wilhelmsen Ships Service has started the contract work attending to the gradual changeover of gases. The company is converting larger vessels first and then will move onto other units, barges and land based workshops.
In addition to supplying gas to vessels, Wilhelmsen Ships Service hosted a training session in Antwerp on cylinder safety and handling, covering the topics DEME had highlighted as most important for their people and business as well as introducing DEME to the stock range and the practical setup.
Future sessions will also be made available for personnel in the field handling the cylinders. DEME Group welcomed the training initiative and acknowledged Wilhelmsen Ships Service as a responsible partner to solve their high-end repair and maintenance needs.
