About us

In 2002 Leeuwestein International Survey was founded in Xanten/Lower Rhine area. The big northsea ports like Rotterdam, Antwerp and Flushingen as well as the Rhine Main area and the German Ruhr area can be reached within 1-3 hours.

Due to the practical experience as seaman and navigation officer worldwide on nearly all types of seagoing vessels the procedures and circumstances on ships and in the ports are well known.

The knowledge was broadened up in the operating department and as supercargo as well as during the construction of a car terminal in North Europe. These experiences enable us a comprehensive point of view on all relevant problems which can occure in the transportation sector.

The photos shown on this webside will give you a small view in the work we already did for a lot of worldwide acting companies.

A „cool“ project

The test assembly of the indian polar research station “Bharati“ was executed in summer/autumn 2011 in the port of Duisburg on a certain area. After dismantling the modules of the polar research station, containers, building machineries, pisten bullys, foodstuff etc. were brought with inland vessels and/or trucks to Antwerp. In Antwerp the Russian icebreaker m.v. Ivan Papanin was already waiting for the further transportation of the cargo to Cape Town.

In Cape Town the project camp, fuel in tank containers as well as foodstuff were loaded on board. Finally the 2 transport helicopters landed on board on the helipad of the icebreaker and were stored and lashed in the hangar.

On 26.10.2015 m.v. Ivan Papanin left Cape Town and arrived in Larsemann Hills/Antarctica in time. After the return to Cape Town further cargo was loaded. On 31.12.2011 m.v. Ivan Papanin left Cape Town for the second time and reached the Antarctica on schedule.

The challenge of this project was to execute all transport activities without any time loss in accordance with the ice conditions in the Antarctica in that way that the assembly of the polar research station could be completed within the Antarctic summer of approximately 4 months only.

The complete acceptance of the packing in consideration with the climate terms as well as the detailled nautical technical planning and supervision of the storage on board of the icebreaker according the discharging sequence for the planning of the assembly in the Antarctica as well as the ice conditions were a great challenge of this extraordinary project.
