Alphatron and Van Oord Sign Maintenance Agreement

Alphatron Marine today announced the signing of a 3-year global maintenance agreement with Van Oord.

The contract is for the maintenance and support of all navigation and communication equipment on board Van Oord’s fleet of more than 80 vessels.

Van Oord – specializing in dredging, offshore oil & gas and offshore wind industries – operates internationally and requires that each and every vessel could be put to work effectively at any time.

Jeroen Kortsmit, Global Business Development Manager, Alphatron Marine: With this agreement we will be able to schedule periodic maintenance well in advance and ultimately minimize the risk of downtime. During the 3-year contract Alphatron Marine will play an active role in recommending full life cycle support of the bridge equipment, aiming for the best possible efficiency for Van Oord.”

Jaap de Jong, Director Ship Management Van Oord: “With this strategic partnership in place we optimize our supply chain which will give way to operational improvement and cost reductions in our fleet management.”

Additionally, Alphatron Marine will offer more innovative ways to improve the support and maintenance level with for example, the recently introduced AlphaEye. This device is a completely new service communication tool that offers the extra capability of real-time audio visual support directly with a support specialist standing by on shore.
