At the start of 2019 we were priviliged to start use of our newest vessel. The GSNED 18 is the little brother (or sister) of the GSNED17 and is 8.00 meters long and 3.15 meters wide. A Weichai engine with 203 hp provides the propulsion. Of course the boat is equipped with all lighting such as searchlight and navigation lighting as well as the necessary safety and rescue equipment such as fire extinguishers, lifebuoys and vests. In addition, 2 Tirfor winches are mounted on the front. The own weight of the GSNED 18 is approximately 8 tons.

The big advantage of this ship, due to its dimensions, its own weight and the fact that it is equipped with lifting eyes, is the possibility to transport by road. This allows us to change location very quickly and if a work is carried out over several areas that are relatively far apart, we can move the GSNED 18 quickly using our own means of transport.

  • GSNED is GMP+ certified

    What is GMP + certification?
    Animal feeding companies can switch to Good Manufacturing / Managing Practice. This regulation, better known as the GMP regulation, makes it demonstrable for companies that feeds and ingredients for food meet the legal requirements and extra-legal requirements agreed with chain parties. This scheme is particularly intended for food companies that sell residual products in the animal feed sector.
