Some of you may have visited Groningen Seaports last year and enjoyed the spectacular boat trip through the Eemshaven. We also had the advantage to hear interesting details about port operation and the many companies active there.
Now we are happy to announce that we have the opportunity to visit one of those companies: Van Oord.
Van Oord is a Dutch family-owned company with over 150 years of experience as a global marine contractor focussing on dredging, oil & gas infrastructure and offshore wind. Four main drivers guide their vision to create a better world for future generations: the growing world population needs more space; maritime transport requires new and improved infrastructure; climate change is asking for better coastal protection; the demand for energy is growing and a renewable energy system is essential to provide the energy needed for the future.
Are you curious about this international company which has built the world around us? Do you still have this dream or fantasy to manage the operation of a large ship? Would you like to meet the people who make this dream come true?
This is your chance to explore, so come visit Van Oord.
