Van Oord is a pre-eminent contractor for dredging, marine engineering and offshore and energy projects . The company is an independent family business, based in the Netherlands and operates in more than fifty countries around the world. Van Oord provides marine engineering solutions in which safety, sustainability and continuity go hand in hand.
Sustainable EPC and Marine Contractor
Van Oord has been involved in many offshore wind energy projects in the past decades. Originally focussing on construction activities as cable installation, scour protection and seabed preparation, since 2002 we have expanded our activities with foundation and turbine installation. Van Oord Offshore Wind Projects, established in 2007, has since then been responsible for the design, engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of many offshore wind farms.
Marine ingenuity - Innovative partner
We believe it is important to innovate and partner with our clients, both during the tendering stage and during project execution. Our centre of excellence is our international Engineering Department, which combines the necessary expert knowledge of design, construction and research.
Van Oord operates the world’s most advanced fleet, which encompasses specialised vessels and dedicated equipment and tools such as our innovative vessel Aeolus, dedicated for transport and installation of foundations and wind turbines, fitted with a 990 tonnes crane, and our cable-laying vessel Nexus, equipped with a 5,000 tons carousel.
Our fully integrated EPC services encompass detailed design and verification, procurement of materials, installation, construction and commissioning services all in one package. In addition we provide separate construction activities, such as foundation and WTG installation, cable installation and scour protection for offshore wind farms.
