Annual inspection of the overtake
A special lifting installation
A few weeks ago, with the assistance of PAX Integrated Logistics BV, the hoisting system of the lock has been approved.
The overtake, dating from 1923-1924, is seen as a rare example of such a lifting for ships. This special piece of civil engineering is located in the area of the area and is equipped with an electrically operated hoisting system. In 1993, the overtake has been completely restored and made working again. Since 2006, the overtake is still used for recreational purposes only.
The overtake is no stranger to the bag. In 2014, rigging designer projects BV repaired and overhauled the hoisting installation. Since then, the annual inspection is provided by the rigging designer Joure BV.
