About About

Loyal partner in the maritime world

Hapo International Barges B.V. was founded in 1987 by Mr. Henk Poot together with several partners and is situated in the harbour of Rotterdam. The headoffice is located in Rotterdam and with maritime real estate in Rotterdam, Ridderkerk and 's-Gravendeel Hapo is complete. Hapo is specialised in providing pontons, crane barges, heavy machinery and other special equipment for salvaging shipwrecks, off- or onshore operations involving heavy lift and heavy lifting transport.

flexible organization

Hapo is a company with a flat organizational structure with minimum depth. We are flexible for our clients, thinking with them every step of the way. We have the knowledge and space to do so. And on the off chance that we don't, our wide network can be used to meet the highest standards.

About

Hapo owns a diverse fleet of heavy machinery, cranes and ships that are used everywhere in the world. All equipment meets the highest requirements in maintenance, resulting in a clean safety record and an extremely low percentage of failure.

As general contractor with more than 30 years of experience in salvage and wreck recycling Hapo and sister company Scheepssloperij Nederland (SSN) have become experts in salvaging and safe recycling of vessels, shipwrecks, offshore-platforms and other objects. In a large variety of projects Hapo has stepped forward and taken the lead to secure the best end result. SSN and Hapo have both been involved in salvaging car carrier ‘Tricolor‘ and container carriers ‘MSC Napoli‘, ‘MSC Nikita‘ and ‘Rokia Delmas‘. From 2012 to 2016 Hapo has exploited its Jack-Up Barge LISA-A, which was used as a ‘Power Generation Facility‘ with gasturbines providing the oilfield Widuru with energy in the Java sea.
