Since ASCARGO was founded, thousands of repairs and modifications to existing hatchcovers of any type and design have been carried out, and the last page of the literature is devoted to ASCARGO repair maintenance and innovations. The company has a team with experience in any kind of repairs such as to rebuild very deteriorated covers and to have them watertight to the satisfaction of the classification society and shipowners, or hatches with mechanical problems.
