Marine and Offshore
We specialise in providing automation solutions (PLC and SCADA) for offshore equipment. The increasing complexity of the operations to be carried out during offshore work, the growing pressure on operational costs and the mitigation of risks require an ever higher level of automation. Thanks to our practical experience and market-oriented approach, we are able, like no other, to think along with our clients about a suitable solution at an early stage and ultimately translate this into a properly functioning system.
Mission equipment are systems that are necessary to conduct offshore operations efficiently and safely. These are often also critical systems that determine the success of the project.
We have experience with the following systems:
- Pipe lay equipment (J-lay and S-lay)
- Motion compensated equipment
- Pile grippers
- Ballast systems
- Well intervention towers
- Stone dump installations
Because of the centuries-long struggle against water, the Dutch dredging industry has taken a unique position worldwide in the realisation of dredging works. Major land reclamation projects, maintenance of canals and rivers and participation in offshore projects are just a few of the services these companies provide. This extensive experience and knowledge of dredging are reflected in the optimisation of the dredging process. Despite the fact that dredging is a specialised job that is performed by people, the automation within this industry is of a high level and incorporates ample knowledge of the dredging process.
