Service Agreements

DMC Service agreements are valid for DMC delivered systems.

Flexible agreement models are designed to give mutual benefits for our customers focused on safe operation, economic aspects, quality and costs.

Safety Certificate

A periodic check of manoeuvring systems has been highly recommended by the Dutch Council of Transport Safety since an investigation concerning accidents with inland vessels. Many of these accidents happen due to rudder defects caused by lack of maintenance and/or poor refits. A very important recommendation from the official investigation is a periodical inspection for manoeuvring systems.

Our deliveries conform with the most stringent internal procedures and our experts make sure all hydraulics, piping and electricity are properly installed.
