Equipment for ballast operations
Van Heck’s ballast equipment is specifically designed for load-outs and float-overs, and ideally suited for salvage operations. The completely autonomous ballast and deballast system can be entirely controlled from a central point and has a total capacity of over 40,000 tons per hour.
Van Heck’s capabilities in this field:
Load-out: Supply a complete ballast system, including (ballast) engineering and operation, to load a construction from the shore onto a barge.
Float-over/mating: Supply a complete ballast system, including engineering and operation, to install a platform on the offshore location.
Jet trenching: Supply pumps to jet in cables on the ocean floor.
For less complicated operations a mini ballast and/or manually controlled system can be supplied.
Van Heck has recently welcomed a new passenger on-board: The Sea Trophy; Green and Easy Oil Recovery. The first complete mobile pump system that enables the controlled, contained, fast (fuel-) oil recovery after incorrect or off-spec fuelling and in the event of grounding or calamity at sea.
