The company

Ten years ago, this company saw a gap in the offshore and civil markets and jumped right in with their designs for temporary structures. Now, they boast over 100 employees and a recently opened UK branch next to their Dutch office located in South Holland.

Past projects include the design of the mooring arrangement at the Halogaland Bridge and the modular support frame for the Ocean Cleanup. They also provide major piling templates for the installation of offshore wind farms, as well as cable handling equipment, motion compensation systems and sea fastening, lifting, and pipe handling tools.

They are able to offer complete project assistance from structural designs and stability analysis to fabrication assistance and certification management in offshore wind, oil and gas, heavy civil engineering, salvage, and decommissioning industries. With a team of naval architects, they also set up a Naval Engineering department.
