The Netherlands: Pon Power, Bolier Sign Deal with Van Oord

Pon Power, the Dutch Caterpillar® dealer, and Bolier, the MaK dealer for the Benelux, have recently signed a three year contract with Van Oord, the world’s leading dredging, hydraulics and offshore projects contractor.

Together the two Pon companies will be responsible for the full maintenance and repair work on all Cat and MaK engines in Van Oord’s extensive Cat fleet over the next three years.

Improved efficiency with fewer emissions

“The ensurance of first class maintenance, that’s probably the most important outcome of this agreement by far. Our aim is to raise the technical performance and optimize the maintenance planning of the engines. This will reduce both energy use and emissions. Reduction of CO2 and SOx is vital and Van Oord is entirely committed to making a real and lasting impact on this. The agreement is a true reflection of Van Oord’s focus on sustainability of the fleet,” said Jaap de Jong, Director Ship Management.

“Signing this contract is in line with Pon’s service strategy. We will be keeping the Cat and MaK engines in prime condition at minimal costs and without compromising the reliability of the installations; a serious contribution towards our clients’ success. This collaboration with Van Oord seamlessly connects with Pon’s ideas; investing in long term business relations with clients, sharing knowledge and expertise and in the process safeguarding Van Oord’s continuity,” said Eric Kraan, Senior Vice President Pon Power Group.
