I assume it is not finding the value, right?  

could try this:

UPDATE Communication SET Documentname  = REPLACE(Documentname, @vBasisMapDocumenten, '') SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS

can you clarify?
I presume that you want to search for the value of @vBasisMapDocumenten in a case insensitive manner.
this would be implicitly the case when the column DocumentName has a case insensitive collation, resp the database's default collation also.
to "force", use COLLATE:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms184391.aspx
specify a collation that is close to what you have in the column's data type, but insensitive...
UPDATE Communication 
  SET Documentname  = REPLACE(Documentname COLLACTE <collation name here>, @vBasisMapDocumenten COLLATE <collation name here>, '')

forgot the collate part:

UPDATE Communication SET Documentname  = REPLACE(Documentname, @vBasisMapDocumenten, '') COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
