Is the security of your ship, crew and cargo priority number one? And are you, in order to comply with the International Safety Maritime regulations, looking for 24/7 availability or reliable back-up? If one or more of the above mentioned questions can be answered with “yes”, then the Royal Dirkzwager 24/7 emergency room, with maritime specialists, is the right solution for you.
