Nautical crew administration

River Technics recruits and mans the vessels for its clients, while setting the highest standards of training for the engineers on board.

Recruitment

We recruit qualified engineers to the various types of vessels, placing the highest demands on the competent and well-trained crew on board in order to meet the applicable high safety standards at all times.

Competence

The training of the crew is important to us. We train sailors and care for next generation engineers. The work in the engine room of a ship is complex and places high demands on the crew. Therefore, we attach great importance to the regular self improvement of our crew.

Administration

We take care of the complete personnel and payroll administration for the shipping company.

Repair, maintenance & investments

The managed vessels are maintained carefully and according to high quality standards. River Technics plays a leading role in the digitization of ships and sets new standards in preventive ship maintenance.

Planning of maintenance work

The life cycle of the machinery on board can be planned and is integrated into a maintenance scheme by our technical specialists. In various budget overviews, the shipowner or ship operator always has a plannable maintenance budget at one’s fingertips.

Preventive maintenance

The more digital information is available, the more efficient and reliable the preventive maintenance of the ship. The investment in a “digital ship” is worthwhile, as significant costs can be saved through preventive measures. We are leaders in the implementation of these preventive facilities.

Purchasing

We coordinate the purchasing and logistics of products to the ships. Through the purchasing volume, our group of companies benefits from best price guarantees from the suppliers, which are passed on to the customer.
