We can rapidly deploy our resources worldwide in response to shipping accidents or dangerous cargo mishaps. Our principal task is to safeguard salvage personnel and ship crewmembers, but also stevedores and others exposed to life or health threats. Our job is to maintain vessel or port area safety. Naturally, we can offer advice and provide practical support for all safety matters during salvage operations involving hazardous materials.
With over 25 years of hard-won experience in this line of business, we’ve gained an outstanding working knowledge of the best approach to all kinds of dangerous cargo accidents. Our emphasis is on chemical- and safety advice. We are qualified dangerous goods specialists and registered expert marine chemists, known here in the Netherlands as the gas-doctors. Famous salvage companies know and value us for our ad-hoc solutions and advice, coupled with a hands-on attitude on site during worldwide salvages of dangerous cargoes.
When you have one of our Chemists working on your problem, it means you are being supported by a versatile and skilled professional working for you. We offer inspections and assessments of toxic areas or confined toxic spaces on board any vessel (with full protective clothing when required). We can issue the legally recognized ‘gas free certificates’ and ‘hot-work’-permits. We’ll take care of determination and monitoring of released toxic- or explosive vapours. We also do environmental analysis, can set-up and manage the removal or repackaging of dangerous cargo remnants while following all legal requirements. We provide chemical advice, when needed offer physical assistance and a constructive contribution to contingency planning.
