About Marine ingenuity

As a global maritime contractor, Van Oord focuses on dredging, oil & gas infrastructure and offshore wind. Marine ingenuity is Van Oord’s signature and the foundation of our success. It is the spark that lights the spirit of our professionals.

Water

is all

around us

Looking at the cover photo of this magazine really makes you think. Photographer Cynthia Boll shows us the people of Jakarta who actually live with their feet in the water. It has become part of their day-to-day life because the capital of Indonesia is sinking – and sinking fast, about 10 centimetres a year at some places. If subsidence continues at this speed, parts of the city could be entirely submerged. 

Accelerating Climate Initiatives
Climate change is aggravating the problems of soil subsidence, heavy rainfall in the monsoon season, and urbanisation in Jakarta. But Indonesia is not alone. Coastal urban areas in other parts of the world are also being affected by sea level rise and the threat of flooding. As a marine contractor, Van Oord wants to contribute to projects intended to protect the most vulnerable deltas in the world. Our ambition, to make societies more resilient and sustainable, is summarised in our white paper on Accelerating Climate Initiatives. Please take a moment to read it. You will learn more about the challenges facing our world, what we can do to adapt, and which integrated solutions Van Oord offers.

On and under water
Water is all around us – it is, quite literally, our work environment. In this magazine, we welcome you on board our brand-new vessel Vox Amalia for a digital tour. But we also invite you to dive into the water with us and learn about the noise mitigation measures we are undertaking to minimise the effects of our work on sea mammals. The seabed is also home to many small aquatic creatures. The Rich North Sea pilot project is investigating how offshore wind farms can make a positive contribution to underwater nature and improve marine biodiversity. Its aim is to determine whether oysters can grow and reproduce and whether their larvae can establish themselves and form a reef in the vicinity of a wind turbine. Interested in technology? Watch our clip of the ultimate rock installation technique in depths up to 1,500 metres. Fascinating!
