IHC Merwede and PRUFTECHNIK join forces

On Wednesday, 3 June, IHC Merwede and the Belgian company PRUFTECHNIK signed a partnership agreement for vibration measurements with the aim of safeguarding uninterrupted dredger operations.

“We are picking up more and more signs from the dredging market that prevention is better than cure”, says J. Hylkema, the Divisional Director of Technology & Services at IHC Merwede. The basic thinking is that preventive maintenance can prevent most unplanned dredger shut-downs.
