The energy transition: so much more than windmills

We are in this together. Step by step we are switching from fossil fuels to more sustainable sources of energy.
The makers are more important than ever! Are you ready to join a future-proof project?

Getting started in the port of Rotterdam

Rotterdam, Europe's largest port, is investing heavily in energy transition. In the coming years there is a lot of work to do and you can train yourself in new techniques and technologies. More information later in this article.

Many projects, a lot of work

And there are a lot of projects available. A transition we are facing worldwide. By energy transition we mean the transition from the use of coal, oil and gas to the use of sun, wind and water as energy sources. Currently, the energy system still uses about 95% fossil energy. If we want to leave the world a little better for the next generations we need to get to work fast! So it makes sense that there is a lot of work and we can use your help with that. Not only now, but also for the years to come.

Where are those projects?

Rotterdam, the largest port in Europe, has been investing heavily in energy transition for a long time. In the coming years there is a lot of work to be done and you can learn about new techniques and technologies. For example, the largest green hydrogen plant in the Netherlands is going to be built in Rotterdam. And more will follow to continue the transition from coal to hydrogen. But the energy transition also effects other processes. For example in the Europoort area, there will be a plant where plastic waste will be converted into liquid hydrocarbons, a raw material for the production of plastics. The goal is to be up and running in the fourth quarter of 2023.

We are looking for you

As you can imagine, a lot of people are needed for this as well. And that's why we're looking for you. Because we are already working in the technical field for over 25 years, we have quite a big network. Looking for a specific project? Get in touch with one of our consultants or check our energy transition project-page.
