New Dutch grouping launched

May 09 2014

Netherlands Maritime Technology was formed on 8th May, bringing together several separate concerns under the former Maritime by Holland brand under one umbrella organisation.

The new name creates clarity, leads to further synergy and better reflects the technological and innovative character of the network members, the organisation claimed.

It was launched in the presence of 230 members and relations at Damen Shipyards.

Netherlands Maritime Technology replaced the following brands - Scheepsbouw Nederland, Holland Shipbuilding Association, Holland Marine Equipment Association, VNSI, HME BV, HME Singapore and CMTI.

It now comprises a network of shipyards, suppliers and service providers. Netherlands Maritime Technology will serve the interests of the network, providing professional project support and carry out independent research, whenever necessary.

There will be a particular focus on issues linked to trade, innovation and human capital.

The official international launch will take place during SMM in Hamburg (9th to 12th September, 2014). The Holland Pavilion in Hall B7 will cover 950 sq m and will host 45 Dutch exhibitors.

In addition, the Royal Dutch Navy frigate ‘HMNS Evertsen’ will visit Hamburg and will host a seminar about how technology from the Netherlands can help shipowners reduce operational expenditure.
