Gardec is made up of two divisions, each with their own specialisations: GARDEC SDS and GARDEC VJ. Not only do we look after the maintenance and repair of mechanical equipment and structural components for vessels, we also carry out complete new-build projects. These projects range from heavy-duty offshore and industrial metal structures to the construction of machine rooms and outfitting of ships.
Stainless steel and aluminium structures
Gardec has a dedicated workshop just for stainless steel and aluminium structures. This is where Gardec produces structures for both maritime hull parts and industrial and aesthetic building components.
Gardec performs a great variety of welding and manufacturing activities on steel structures. We manufacture both maritime and industrial structures at our workshops in Zeebrugge. We also carry out welding on location, principally in the region from Le Havre to Hamburg.
Gardec has an experienced team of welders who have GWO, OPITO BOSIET and HUET certification. Major contractors engage Gardec for specialised welding work when they are fitting jackets and topsides or when they are demobilizing oil and gas platforms.
Gardec has a fleet of modern telescopic cranes that it hires on the commercial market in North-West Flanders. These cranes are primarily used by the construction sector, industry and maritime companies.
