    In the course of more than five decades, the Stauff Group has achieved the status of world-leading full-service provider in fluid and hydraulic line components with a focus on fastening systems, connectors and filtration. More than 1,400 employees develop and manufacture a range of more than 40,000 standard components with a consistently high level of quality.

    The origin of this portfolio is the legendary Stauff Clamp which is available in a variety of types for maritime applications – for shipbuilding and yachting (Adhesive Bonded Fastening), but also as a special anti-corrosion version for the fastening of stainless-steel pipework in offshore equipment (ACT series).

    Another clamp type especially designed for maritime technologies is a noise-reducing series (NRC) which dampens the noise created by fluid-transporting pipes and tubes and thus contributes to on-board comfort for staff and passengers.

    Apart from the clamps portfolio, Stauff offers a broad range of components and systems for the handling of hydraulic and other fluids, including flanges, hose connectors and quick-release couplings and valves. Important series like the 24° tube connectors and the Stauff Connect range of metric tube connectors have been approved by maritime certification organisations (Lloyds Register, Bureau Veritas, DNV).

    Complementary Stauff product ranges, e.g. for filtration and testing, are also widely used in maritime applications. This is documented by products such as our very compact mobile filtration/ cleaning unit which was developed specifically for use in confined spaces on ships.

    Typical for Stauff´s market “system supplier” approach is the range of high-level machines for the assembly of connectors – and the “Stauff Line” service offering, which ensures the on-demand delivery of custom-designed and ready-to-install hydraulic lines. The international maritime industry is served by a network of distributors and wholly-owned manufacturing facilities, distribution bases and warehouses in 18 countries worldwide.


    Factory, logistics and process automation: SICK is a leading sensor manufacturer and provides sensors and application solutions that create the perfect basis for controlling processes securely and efficiently, protecting individuals from accidents and preventing damage to the environment.

    Founded in 1946 by Dr.-Ing. h.c. Erwin Sick, the company, with headquarters in Waldkirch/Germany, ranks among the technological market leaders. With more than 50 subsidiaries and equity invest-
    ments as well as numerous agencies, SICK maintains a presence all around the globe. In the fiscal year 2018, SICK had about 10,000 employees worldwide and achieved Group sales of just under EUR 1.6 billion.

    Sensor intelligence – for all requirements
    SICK’s product range includes over 40,000 sensors for a wide array of applications and therefore offers the right product for any task, thus meeting challenges including those within the shipping industry:

    Process and emissions monitoring
    SICK analysis solutions monitor and check emission limit values and the emission of pollutants into the environment. Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is gaining importance in driving ship engines. That is why vibration-resistant gas-flow metres are becoming more important for optimal engine control and the fiscal accounting of gas consumption.

    Object detection system at and on ships
    SICK sensors secure locked access areas on board and visualise the length of stay, movement direction and movement speed of persons and groups and analyse the movement profiles of the public in real time. With SICK 3D LiDAR sensors, reliable man-overboard systems are implemented and help to save lives.

    Hazard detection
    It’s important to detect hazards in a timely manner. SICK sensors detect vehicles at risk of fire before the journey begins, enabling prompt withdrawal. Hazardous goods signs on trucks are automatically read and classified. Anti-collision systems prevent crashes with fixed and moving objects in the portal crane area.

    Loading and unloading
    SICK sensors measure the volume of bulk goods on conveyor belts as well as the levels in containers and tanks. There is a suitable solution even for the measurement of the oxygen content of inert gases in bunkers and loading ships with fuels or chemicals.

    Service and maintenance
    SICK is a one-stop shop for a complete range of services – expert advice, detailed project planning and engineering, installation, commissioning and uncomplicated maintenance and repair.

    Maritime Support Vlissingen (MSV) was founded in August 2018 and aims at the rapidly growing demand for tender services in the southern North Sea region.
    As the number of offshore windfarms grows so does the interest in tender services, but similar servicing is needed for example for crew changes and store supplies for all kinds of vessels.

    Broad range of services
    From its location, MSV can swiftly and flexibly service a wide area from Vlissingen offering tender services for which they use their own vessels and vessels rented from DCS Maritime. These tenders are not used just for crew changes, but also for bringing marine surveyors on board of vessels for inspection. The services provided are for their own customers, as well as for shipping agents. Apart from these services, MSV also offers CTV mooring space, office space, and storage and transshipment facilities for equipment and spare parts to third parties.

    New offices and warehousing
    The company has advanced plans for a new building for offices and warehousing at the Binnenhaven in Vlissingen. This prime location allows for good quick access to their own vessels. The Binnenhaven is close to the city of Vlissingen and within a stone’s throw from the train station, which is very convenient for MSV’s customers. Apart from this, the location gives MSV an excellent proposition as it is relatively close to the North Sea offshore windfarms and the oil and gas fields.

    With the planned newbuild premises, the company can further extend its onshore services to customers as well. In this new building, customers will find up-to-date and first-class individual offices and storage space, along with shared facilities. Using skilled technicians from within the company, MSV also offers maintenance and repair services to vessels. Upon request, the company will furthermore have available space to provide accommodation.

    Hydrex offers turnkey underwater repair solutions to shipowners wherever and whenever they are needed. Hydrex’s multidisciplinary team will help shipowners find the best solution for any problem encountered with their ships below the water line. We will immediately mobilise our diver/technicians to any location around the globe to carry out necessary repair work without the need to drydock.

    We have a long and successful track record of performing complex permanent underwater repairs to thrusters, propellers, rudders, stern tube seals and damaged or corroded hulls. In fact, we pioneered most of these more complex operations which once used to require drydocking, but can now be carried out with the vessel afloat. By creating drydock-like conditions around the affected area, our teams can carry out these operations on vessels in port or at anchor. This permits normal commercial activities to continue without disruption, eliminating the loss of time, production and income that drydocking entails, as well as saving the enormous expense of drydocking itself.

    All the projects we undertake are engineered and carried out in close cooperation with the customer and third-party suppliers. They begin with evaluating the feasibility of an underwater repair, continue through design and construction of customised equipment and go all the way through to successful execution of the repair or replacement and subsequent follow-up.

    All Hydrex divers are trained and qualified to perform the full range of class-approved repair procedures in even the harshest conditions. We have found that an effective, competent team is the only way to consistently achieve a high-quality result in the short periods of time usually available to ships.

    Through an ever-expanding, worldwide network of offices, Hydrex can provide these start-to-finish solutions economically at any location. Headquartered in the Belgian port of Antwerp, we have offices in Rotterdam, Tampa (U.S.A) and Algeciras (Spain).

    The current market demands fast and efficient action and Hillebrand is able to respond to this due to our flexibility. If necessary, we can fabricate at several locations simultaneously and we can call on our other ASK Romein sites for extra staff, materials and semi-finished products. Consequently, we are able to turn around a large amount of work in a short period of time and we can guarantee that the agreed deadlines will be met, which is extremely important in our sector.

    Hillebrand was one of the first construction companies to specialise in the processing of high-grade steel, including S690. The company has since built up an outstanding reputation within this domain.
