About Soenen Ship Dismantling and Cargo Solutions

SOENEN BVBA is a highly qualified and experienced enterprise that handles ships and their cargo in all conditions, worldwide.

Who we are?

The company, founded in 1997 by Mr. Stefaan Soenen, has already been involved in a large number of high profile marine incidents (such as the Tricolor – English Channel, New Flame – Gibraltar, Rena – New Zealand, etc.). It provides a wide range of services to the marine industry with a particular focus on processing, scrapping and disposal of recovered wrecks (or wreck sections).

After being involved in quite a number of distressed cargo operations during the past two decades, we felt a need to set up a separate branch within the group named SOENEN CARGO SOLUTIONS. This branch entirely focusses on this niche market, with the aim of better serving our Clients. Whether in-tact or damaged cargoes which often is a result of a ship’s collision, grounding or sinking, a suitable, tailor-made solutions will be offered, no matter whether the cargo is affected by (sea)water, fire or smoke
