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.

To reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the British government has set an ambitious target: by 2020, 15% of all energy must be obtained from renewable sources. After completion in 2017, the Burbo Bank Extension offshore wind park will be making a valuable contribution towards achieving this aim by supplying 180,000 households with green energy. Van Oord’s Svanen played a crucial role in the construction of the offshore wind park. The heavy lift vessel, with a lifting capacity of 8,700 tonnes, installed 32 monopiles and transition pieces during the summer of 2016.
