Case in the spotlight

Replacing 54 windows in three days

A typo?! Definitely not! On a Wednesday night, we received a call from a ship owner, with the following challenge: “As a result of damages, 54 windows need to be replaced and we have to sail again on Sunday afternoon.” After asking three times whether this really was a serious question, we started working. To do this, all the pieces of the puzzle needed to fall into place! Thanks to a great collaboration with one of our glass partners, we were able to inspect and certify the glass as early as Friday morning. This was followed by more than 50 hours of transport, carrying, work and more work, with little sleep. The results were worth the effort! After having replaced all 54 windows, as we were busy loading our tools, the ship’s horn sounded. Right on time!
