Heavy lift specialists HEBO and Bonn & Mees merge

Dutch marine heavy lift specialists HEBO Maritiem Service and Bonn & Mees have agreed to join forces in a merger that will combine both their equipment fleets and other resources.

The merger will lay the foundation for expanded services and a stronger position in the market.

The partnership will ensure an efficient and specialised focus in areas such as heavy lifting, specialised transport, salvage operations, and emergency response.

The two Rotterdam-based companies are combining their knowledge, expertise, and specialisms to improve availability and predictable outcomes for clients across Europe through their fleet.

The Hebo fleet includes the 2,200-tonne capacity heavy lift sheerlegs vessel HEBO Lift 10 (formerly Taklift 4), plus numerous floating sheerlegs and crane barges. Bonn & Mees has three floating sheerlegs. Matador 3 lifts 1,800 tonnes, while Matador and Matador 2 are each rated at 400 tonnes.

Marius Punt, HEBO CEO, and Peter Leenheer, Bonn & Mees owner, say they plan to seize opportunities for growth, expansion, sustainability, and international development.
