Van Voorden Castings has been a supplier of wearing parts for dredging ships for over 30 years.
'Over the past few years we, together with Boskalis, increasingly came to the realization that we were destroying value by treating worn-out parts as scrap metal. Once you remove the parts that have worn away, what is left of things like pump casings and impellers is completely reusable. Together we have developed a process for this. All the old parts come back to the Netherlands and are cut down into small lumps and then melted down in our factory and turned into new products,' explained Jac Meeuwissen, director of Van Voorden in Zaltbommel.
