In 1969 H.O.R.S. was established by the former “Stoomvaart Maatschappij ‘Nederland'” (S.M.N.), the “Hollandsche Stoomvaart Maatschappij” (H.S.M.) and the “Amsterdamsche Droogdok Maatschappij” (A.D.M.) shipyards. It was a continuation of the workshops of S.M.N. and H.S.M.

In March 1983 H.O.R.S. was assigned to the Deurholt group of companies by Royal Nedlloyd Group.

At our premises we prefabricated a replacement part for a corroded helicopter platform. Upon arrival of the vessel alongside our quay we cropped the old section and installed the new one. This was carried out for an international oil company.

During a call to Amsterdam our crew transported the landing platform that was prefabricated in our workshop. Once on board, the vessel left and our crew finished the installation at sea.

Once we finished the platform, and the hydraulics as well, we tested the platform installation, hydraulics as well, we tested the platform to a buoy.
