General – IRO
On the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the association IRO, which represents the interests of Dutch suppliers in the Offshore Energy Industry, a book will be published on 1 December: ‘Won from the Waves: the Dutch offshore industry, a pioneer in energy transition’.
The book describes the fascinating development of the Dutch offshore industry, which has been one of the top five in the world for fifty years.
This position is due to a strong cluster of suppliers. Innovative companies designing, building, transporting, installing, maintaining and decommissioning platforms, transformer stations and wind turbines. All together, they play an important role in the current energy transition.
‘Won from the Waves’ describes how this industry operates with a lot of courage and technical ingenuity in a critical social and political climate.
The book is available at bookshops.
