Salvaging jobs speak to the imagination and often require impressive discharge rates. Our client engaged Van Heck’s knowledge and its pumps in order to raise a drydock in South Europe. There were deploy eight large pumps. A special aspect was that a number of pumps had to be assembled below water. The drydock was afloat in a few days, enabling the repairs to be made.


Van Heck has delivered eight VSPH 400 pumps and six power packs. In addition, around 120 meters of pipeline were delivered to Italy. The estimated capacity per VSPH pump is approx. 1000 m³ / h at approx. 14 mwc.

Van Heck’s service technician was on site throughout the entire project.
