Marine Ingenuity
Van Oord is a leading international contractor specializing in dredging, marine engineering and offshore projects (oils, gas and wind). We find innovative solutions designed to meet our clients’ and business partners’ challenges. Marine ingenuity is what sets Van Oord apart. In just two words, we show in the clearest possible terms what we do, how we do it, and what makes us different. A passionate, smart, shrewd, international marine contractor – that is how we see ourselves. Projects that are extensive, complex, and that have preferably never been done before are our strength.

Van Oord’s corporate culture is one in which employees are given – and are eager to accept and take – responsibility. We want all our employees to enjoy their work, to work safely, and to feel like part of a team. Working closely with our clients and partners, with respect for each other and the environment, we strive to earn a healthy profit. Our employees enjoy a safe working environment in which they continually embrace opportunities to learn.
