Cooperation between Van Meer and Danfoss ensures a higher service level in the Marine & Offshore segment

13 december 2022

Danfoss and Van Meer conclude the first official collaboration to provide preventive and responsive services for maritime and offshore applications within the Benelux. Service and maintenance is embedded Van Meer's DNA. The organization has been active for more than 30 years in providing preventive maintenance and solving malfunctions on both air and water cooled frequency converters and soft starters in low voltage.

Life cycle support on Danfoss drive installations

The strategic partnership, between Danfoss and Van Meer, offers customers in the Benelux the opportunity rely on Van Meer as a certified Danfoss partner. Given its many years of experience with frequency converters, Danfoss has placed van Meer in the confidence to provide specialist maintenance services on their products. The focus is to provide services with a long-term vision throughout the life-cycle of Danfoss installations.

On-site services 24/7

Van Meer offers possibilities for commissioning, maintenance, retrofit and exchange as well as warranty handling with the support from Danfoss. Because of the partnership, Van Meer has the availability of spare parts, new products and tools to support customers. The employability of van Meer's service team gives customers the guarantee to be helped in the event of unforeseen calamities in a short term. In addition can preventive maintenance be flexibly scheduled as in the Maritime segment there are often only short time frames available for this.

Knowledge exchange and training

In order to provide the best possible service to customers, Danfoss and Van Meer are strongly committed to transparent knowledge exchange and training. For example, Van Meer’s service team is regularly trained to meet the requirements set by Danfoss to be able to perform high-quality specialized services.

Future prospects

Van Meer sees developments in drive technology within the maritime sector increasing further in the coming years. For example, more and more ships will be electrified and frequency converters will play a more prominent role.  The partnership between Danfoss and Van Meer therefore strives to guarantee a high level of service and strengthen the position in the market.
