Back to Meet the countries

The Netherlands

The Netherlands has 111 offshore wind farm projects of which ten currently operating, two are in the build phase, and two are either consented or have applied for consent. The Netherlands has also announced plans to construct the world’s largest offshore wind farm that will be located in the Dutch North Sea. The wind farm is named the Hollandse Kust Zuid 1-4 offshore wind energy project.


With the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp within reach, projects in Europe are the ideal base for Helder Maritiem staff. We are happy to relieve clients, both in the on and offshore sector, with technically trained personnel in the field of petrochemicals, renewable energy and the construction sector. We provided staff for many and diverse positions on the following projects:
  • Nord stream 2 project: Nord Stream 2 is a new export gas pipeline running from Russia to Europe across the Baltic Sea. The decision to build Nord Steam 2 was based on the successful experience in building and operating the Nord Stream gas pipeline. The new pipeline, similar to the one in operation, will establish a direct link between Gazprom and the European consumers. It will also ensure a highly reliable supply of Russian gas to Europe.
  • Construction of the HTT terminal: The HES Hartel Tank Terminal on the Hartelstrook in the port of Rotterdam is a terminal in development. Parent company HES International B.V. is a very experienced player in the field of storage and handling of bulk goods. With a lot of knowledge about working with wet bulk, a very high-quality and safe terminal will be built. We attach great importance to the dialogue with the environment, relevant authorities and local resident.
  • Thamesweg route: The Havenspoorlijn, the first part of the Betuwe route, will be relocated in the Rotterdam port area. The new route, Theemsweg route, will be realized in 2021 and is a solution to the problems at the Caland Bridge near Rozenburg.

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.
