We decide per job which equipment would be the most suitable to use. We transport all machinery on our own trucks. Our truck fleet is tailored to the work. Given our wide range of services, we have a considerable fleet. It could involve the transport of willow faggots (22 metres long) or brushwood. Or the use of crawler cranes or mobile cranes and crawler vehicles. From tractor to crane ship, from crawler vehicle to truck. The equipment is always available. Anywhere, even in the most remote places. No bridge is too far.

Floating crane

Working in or near water obviously places high demands on our floating work equipment. The fleet contributes to a large extent to the execution of the various jobs. From light, stable aluminium barges and boats with considerable buoyancy, to a small crane ship for transporting brushwood from the withybeds during ebb and flow. No water too deep.

Van Aalsburg B.V. is proficient in many areas, be it in the water or on land. And if the required equipment cannot be purchased, we make it ourselves. Van Aalsburg B.V. – It’s as simple as that.

Hire pontoons

Van Aalsburg has an extensive range of coupling pontoons and unifloats. They are indispensable when working in or near the water: building or repairing banks or quays. They serve as platforms for excavators, as transport for heavy equipment and can be used as temporary bridges.

Several pontoons are equipped with hydraulic spud poles, on which pontoons can be moored. The pontoons can be connected together lengthways or widthways, without the use of cables or complex couplings. Any desired platform configuration can be made. The load capacity is 2 to 60 tonnes.

Unifloats are more stable and have an even better load capacity than coupling pontoons. We have approximately 1500 m² of coupling pontoons and about 450 m² of unifloats. A huge load capacity. Enough for a work island, a pontoon bridge or a pontoon for events on which a tent can be placed.
Van Aalsburg B.V. can deliver coupling pontoons and unifloats to any address using their own transport.
