With great pride Reitsma Recycling currently owns Netherlands most modern Shipbreaking-company.

Due to the perfect location of the company compared to the Prinses Margrietcanal it is relatively easy to guide vessels from the canal to the new slipway.

By using the most modern techniques hardly any risks are taken in damaging the delicate environment. Everything is done to protect nature as best as possible. This protection consists of (for example) triple oil deviders, double oil filters and special nets for protecting the canal from waste materials.

The timelaps video on this page offers an impression of the way Reitsma is demolishing ships on its slipway.

Most objects are inland ships, seaworthy vessels, trawlers and container-carriers. Apart from ships, also other objects can safely be recycled on the slipway. Reitsma's expertise in demolishing numerous objects can be used in environmentally-safe demolishing almost any object which can't be recycled in ordinary ways
