ROG Ship Repair BV will be the new name of the former Serdijn Ship Repair yet to be announced at this year’s maritime industry fair SMM in Hamburg, Germany.
The name change comes six months after Rotterdam Offshore Group acquired Serdijn Ship Repair.
“This change represents more than just a new name,” according to Martin van Leest, Managing Director of ROG Ship Repair. “ROG Ship Repair connects us with our brand heritage, but the new name goes further with an inherent guarantee to provide all our customers with the very best in ship repair, products, services, safety and innovation.”
The Rotterdam-based terminal has in and out open sea access. Alongside the jetties there are lay-by facilities for (marine, sea-going and Jack Up) vessels up to 19m length, 6m breadth and 9.5 m draft. ROG has heavy lift crane capacity and a large yard area of more than 14,00sqm with a fully equipped workshop.
ROG Ship Repair is a subsidiary of Rotterdam Offshore Group, and will focus on:
- yard repairs and conversions (including collision repair involving hull steel work to complete engine overhaul and maintenance and repair work on generators, pumps, winches, hydraulic systems, cranes, hatches etc.)
- port repairs
- voyage repairs
Rotterdam Offshore Group as a whole addresses several other business services including mobilization, demobilization and maintenance for offshore vessels, construction work for any kind of vessel, along with high end on site mechanical services alignments, vibration and 3D measurements, 3D scanning and on-site machining.
“The company’s new focus is already yielding impressive results, with an increasing order portfolio and satisfying reactions from the clients. We are now able to create new and better ways to serve our customers and enhance the quality, safety and environmental care of our work,” Martin van Leest added.
“The recent extension of our business services has also proven successful and the company is working on additional business services to fuel growth. The new logo design is built around a balance between the old and new core values that fits well with the company’s marine heritage,” he stressed.
