Back to Meet the countries

We are proud that Helder Maritiem is selected by the DEME group as one of their personnel suppliers for the coming years.
The agreement includes personnel services for the whole group including the offshore and renewables activities.

By signing this frame agreement we formalize the intensive cooperation since the establishment of Helder Maritiem two years ago.

Introduction

As early as 2003, Belgium started with the development of its first offshore wind farm on the Thornton Bank (C-Power). For the pilot phase, 6 gravity based foundations were constructed on which the first offshore 5 MW wind turbines were installed in 2008. This pilot phase was followed by the installation of 6 MW wind turbines on jacket foundations.

Several Belgian companies such as DEME, CG, Fabricom, Jan De Nul, Hanssen Industrial Transmissions, GeoSea, Iemants, G-Tech, etc., active in maritime construction, offshore electrical infrastructure, gearbox manufacturing and cable laying, contributed to the successful construction and operation of the Belgian offshore wind farms.
This pioneering expertise of the Belgian offshore wind energy sector is being exported abroad: many Belgian companies are active in European and international offshore wind projects.

Working offshore in Europe

Working offshore is challenging and highly rewarding. From marine construction to research and development, an offshore career can take you around the globe from India and China to South America and the North Sea. These industries are always evolving, fast-paced and challenging. They offer the opportunity to build a career that is always interesting, where innovation and problem-solving are the order of the day. The boom in offshore today is wind farming.
