Conveyor belt Vlissingen

New winch with controls for DEME Building Materials BV Vlissingen

Traditionally, Dromec has had a strong connection with the offshore and nautical sector. It is therefore not surprising that the Zeeland based construction and machine builder P. van Eijzeren and Dromec have found each other. An existing conveyor belt has been converted and it again complies with current legislation and regulations.

Project DEME Building Materials conveyor belt

P. van Eijzeren – based in Borssele and Zierikzee and founded in 1919 – specializes in agricultural mechanization and in construction and machine building, including engineering, machining and assembly.

‘Dromec uses us as a supplier for all kinds of sheet metal and steel parts. We also produced winchdrums for them’, explains project engineer Bram Steendijk. ‘The project for DBM Vlissingen-Oost was considerably larger.’


Winchsystem for conveyorbelt

Storage and transhipment company DBM Vlissingen-Oost knocked on their door to modernize a conveyor belt with which inland vessels are loaded with sand, stones and gravel. ‘The height of that belt in relation to the ship had to be flexible. Adapted to the size of the ship and moving with the tide. To raise or lower the conveyor belt, a winch system was needed. The skipper operates the belt.’

Matching 3D Model

The winch, control & software, hoisting cable and associated pulleys come from Dromec’s design department and workshop. P. van Eijzeren was responsible for the adjustments of the conveyor belt and the construction in the port of Vlissingen. The entire construction was, of course, extensively tested in practice. The development process – from the first sketch to commissioning – took six months.

Good communication and cooperation

The mutual communication and cooperation is excellent. ‘Because of the big distance, we mainly communicate by telephone and e-mail. That was always done in a pleasant and clear manner. The Dromec winch 3D model fitted neatly into our conveyor belt design model. The work and time schedule were neatly drawn up. I know that our customer is very satisfied with the end result. That functions properly. In short, it was a great service & co-operation!’

Our approach…

By listening carefully to the wishes and requirements of our customers, a possible solution quickly emerges in the form of a winch system. Only in combination with the right controls and software a winch will do what the customer has in mind. Realizing this combination is daily work for Dromec. This way you are always in control over your load regardless of the circumstances.

DROMEC winches. Your movement in good hands.

Dynamic and Innovative in winches, winchsystems, controls and software. With our enthousiastic team, we develop  from small till  very big & complex systems with the highest demands in terms of safety and ease of use. We also work very closely with certified body’s as DNVGL, BV, ABS, Lloyds so your winches and systems can be completely certified at our own company together with you.

It often starts with a good idea, preferably on a piece of scrap paper. After an initial consultation, we prepare one or more proposals, including a target price and preliminary drawing. Your idea or problem, always remains central in this. If the feeling on both sides is good, we start. Thanks to our own inhouse developed and written project software, your project stays in the picture and under control from start to finish, including the planning and delivery time. We are LloydsRegister ISO 9001 certified.
