At VLS, our facilities operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to bring your vessels nonstop care when you need it most. We offer everything from repairs and vapor control to regulatory inspection services to fill the need in our local community for five-star marine repair services.
The mission behind VLS is to wisely steward natural resources with ecologically friendly practices so future generations can enjoy our planet.
VLS offers extensive marine repair services with a 200 HP boiler, crane and thermal combustor. We also provide several other main services, including marine vapor control, topside repairs, federal inspection and state cleaning inspection services.
When loading a bulk liquid tanker or barge with flammable liquids with a vapor pressure greater than 0.5 PSI, these liquids can emit volatile organic compounds (VOC). A vapor control unit safely and effectively destroys these explosive vapors found during the hydrocarbon loading process for a marine cargo vessel.
We provide a variety of spot services for smaller vessel problems. We have a state-art-of-the-art facility to repair issues from the hull above the waterline and up.
We also offer regular USCG inspections so you can receive your annual certification. The USCG provides 15 vessel safety check (VSC) criteria you must meet, including everything from personal flotation devices (PFDs) to the condition of the boat and regulatory compliance.
The LDEQ exists to ensure a clean air environment for the people in Louisiana. VLS provides marine cleaning services to meet the level of excellence required by the state so you can maintain compliance and protect your workforce and fellow citizens.
