Always at your service
The people of the Hendrik Veder Group understand the stringent regulations regarding lifting, towing, mooring, rigging, and lashing equipment. We provide both superior quality products and services that guarantee your safety. Below is an overview of our services.
Inspection & (re-)certification
Owners of steel wire ropes or related equipment must maintain product safety, making recurring inspections mandatory. Hendrik Veder Group performs maintenance inspections and equipment certification on site and in-house. Approved products receive a proof (re-) certification or an inspection report.
Load testing of cranes
Load testing of cranes is required by many safety regulations, national and international standards and manufacturers. It is the purpose of the load test to ensure by actual overloading that the equipment is capable of safely lifting and moving the rated load through all designed motions. We are qualified to load test cranes of all capacities using water weights and other static weight options.
Reeving and unreeving of cranes and winches
Our spooling machines have a capacity of up to 250 tons unit weight for reeving and unreeving of cranes and winches. We also have hydraulic wire rope tensioning machines with a back tensioning capacity of 45 tons. The machines are available for rental, with or without an operator.
Reconditioning and overhaul
Reconditioning and overhauling blocks, swivels, chain and other lifting gear is another area of expertise. The steps undertaken during reconditioning and overhauling include: disassembly, cleaning, inspection, parts renewal, assembly, load testing, non-destructive testing (NDT) and coating.
Complete annual and quadrennial lifeboat surveys
It is mandatory to regularly test lifeboats. We test both lifeboats and related equipment using water bags. Any possible defects on the boat or ropes are repaired immediately. An approved lifeboat receives a proof of (re-) certification.
