About us

Rolling up our sleeves and undertaking all sorts of tasks. This has made Diving & Salvage Company W. SMIT a concept in the maritime world for more than 60 years. In Rotterdam as well as far beyond that. “Just call SMIT Waalhaven.”  Our clients, large and small, often use this expression. Why? We do not shy away from any job, large or small. For businesses as well as the government. The bargee with a problem can count on us 24/7, and so can the large (domestic and international) shipping companies with their multiple ships.


Maintenance is more than just repairs. It also includes the precise and timely inspection and identification of potential damage.  For that purpose, we use high-tech digital equipment.  As a result, you are able to directly view the progress of the inspection activities.  All images are stored and can be sent all over the world.

Wide range

Yet, we offer even more. Renovation. Maintenance and new construction of pile walls and slipways. Cleaning and maintenance of cooling water systems. Inspection and repair of locks and lock gates.  You see what we mean.  We simply do everything that is maritime.  Listing all of it would just be wasting the time spend reading it. You can just e-mail or call us directly for a job.
