By MarEx 2018-01-30 22:03:00

AEGIR-Marine has received an Approved Workshop statement from DNV-GL. AEGIR-Marine is the first brand-independent service provider in The Netherlands with an approved workshop for repair and maintenance of propulsion systems. 

For brand-independent service providers who perform repair and maintenance work on maritime propulsion systems, approval of their workshop is completely new. AEGIR-Marine approached DNV-GL for the approval process, because this agency also supported the company in obtaining the ISO 9001 certification, the international standard for quality management systems. Workshop Approval includes the quality of maintenance on propulsion systems, workplace routing, a safe working environment, dealing with hazardous substances and risk management to ensure the quality and a high uptime of the equipment based on elements of ISO 9001, 14001 and 18001.

AEGIR-Marine joins the ranks of major players

With its new repair shop AEGIR-Marine joins the ranks of the major players in this field. The newly opened workshop allows the overhaul of ship components up to fifty tons. The height under the new crane is a whopping 12.5 meters. The new building is fifteen meters high in total. Additionally, AEGIR-Marine is able to perform spin tests at this new location. This means running and simulating propeller and thruster speeds in real time.

A reliable and accredited party

Marcel van der Hoff, Product Manager at AEGIR-Marine Propulsion Service: "As a brand-independent supplier and service provider this approval allows us to offer our customers and prospects a quality assurance. Many shipping companies and owners of ships already know us. This approval increases the freedom of choice of technical managers and owners of ships. The quality assurance, our 24x7 flexibility, customer focus, expertise and competitive prices make AEGIR-Marine a very reliable and accredited party to do business with."

Renowned Classification Agency

DNV GL is one of the three leading classification agencies for ships worldwide. Two other major agencies are Lloyd's Register and the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). DNV GL classifies 5,100 ships: together some 101 million gross tons. This is sixteen percent of the worldwide maritime tonnage. DNV GL has been recognized by 130 maritime authorities. The Norwegian Veritas (DNV) merged with Germanischer Lloyd (GL) in 2012, after which the DNV GL Group was formed.
