Van der Velden launches new equipment division
Van der Velden Marine Systems is further expanding its activities with the establishment of a new division: Van der Velden Equipment B.V. In addition to the maritime market, this new division will also serve the onshore industry and energy markets (power stations).
Under its former name of Van der Velden Industrial, Van der Velden Equipment B.V. has for many years been the sales agent for EFFER Marine Cranes and the distributor for FUNKE Heat Exchangers. In line with the ambition to complete and diversify our services, the product range has now been expanded to include HEAT NORD box coolers, GESAB heat transfer systems, MEP marine cranes, winches and other deck equipment, GEA WESTFALIA separators as well as SEPAR fuel filters.
Van der Velden Equipment B.V. is also the exclusive agent for Van der Velden Barkemeyer and offers complete manoeuvring packages for oceangoing vessels, including rudders, rudder trunks, streamline bodies, van der Velden COMMANDER™ Ram-type and Rotary vane steering gear, nozzles and silent EPS™ thrusters.
Marnix Verschoor has been appointed General Manager and will be responsible for positioning this new division in the market and further expanding its activities. Verschoor has a solid technical and commercial background with all-round management experience. He will work closely with Ton van Es, who has been an independent agent for Van der Velden’s Oceangoing vessels division in the Benelux for over five years. Van Es’ in-depth knowledge of Van der Velden manoeuvring equipment will be incorporated in Van der Velden Equipment B.V.
