Our rental machines are available on location, anywhere in the world!

Doornbos Equipment have experience in renting out equipment worldwide for the shipping industry and other maintenance projects. With an extensive fleet of machines that can do the work quickly and also reliably. Successfully used by exporters, ship-owners and shipyards.
The equipment for repair work is used for surface cleaning with high-pressure water jets, for both conventional and special solutions. Cargo residue, old layers of paint and rust are removed from the surface before a new coat is applied. These projects are carried out at sea, while anchored, while the vessel is in a dry dock or in the port.

Doornbos Equipment offer two full service solutions for proper maintenance work: Quick Cleaning and Complete Cleaning.

Quick Cleaning

Doornbos takes care of complete maintenance on board while the vessel is in port. Cargo residue, old paint and rust are removed before a new layer can be applied. We supply high-pressure pumps with a pressure from 750 to 1000 bar (325hp diesel units) for maintenance. High-pressure basting is specialised work performed according to a strict time schedule. That is why we offer 24/7 support.
