Our core sectors

We are privileged to be a part of the remarkable growth and evolution of the engineering industry in the Netherlands.

The Netherlands has emerged as a hub for groundbreaking technologies and pioneering projects which attract top engineering talent and clients from around the world. We are committed to supporting this growth by connecting highly skilled engineers with exciting career opportunities that allow them to thrive and contribute to the continued development of the industry.

Civil & Infrastructure

Existing infrastructure in the Netherlands is being converted so that it can be utilized for renewable energy. As a part of this objective our gas pipeline network is being adapted to safely transport green hydrogen. Developing this high-quality, underground, pipeline network is one of the biggest challenges being undertaken in the field of civil engineering in the Netherlands. The Netherlands is also reinvesting in its water infrastructure to further support the requirements for green hydrogen production.

Renewable energy

The Netherlands has been a front-runner in the shift towards renewable energy for over two decades. It has developed industry leading knowledge in the design and implementation of offshore windfarms. In addition to this, it has also made significant strides in green hydrogen production and have set our sights on becoming the green hydrogen hub of Europe.

Marine & Offshore

The Netherlands takes full advantage of its coastline to develop its robust infrastructure network. This includes the production of offshore energy from wind turbines with a capacity that has grown from 800MW to 2x2GW. Additionally, while the country has offshore oil and gas infrastructure, it is gradually transitioning away from their usage.


Some of Europe’s largest refineries, Shell and BP, are based in the Netherlands. A large focus is being placed on working to make these plants greener. This is being done by utilizing green hydrogen as a fuel to drive pumps and high consumption mechanical equipment. The refineries are also being revamped to decrease the amount of emissions they produce.

Datacenter & Facilities

The Netherlands hosts multiple hyperscale data centers. It is a suitable location for such mission-critical facilities because of its stable electrical grid and world-class connectivity infrastructure.


Take the next step towards exciting career opportunities in the Netherlands and become a part of the future of engineering.
