Due to poor market conditions in the oil and gas industry, increasing competition, the combination of price pressure and unfavourable contractual conditions in the wind energy market, and the somber prospects for the near future, Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG) has made the decision to implement a reorganisation of the company.
As a result of the restructuring, an anticipated 450 of the existing 770 jobs in the company will be phased out. Compulsory redundancies will unfortunately be unavoidable. The job losses will affect the head office in Zwijndrecht (Netherlands), next to the HFG yards in the Netherlands, United Kingdom and Poland. The plans will enable HFG to continue operations at all its locations in Vlissingen, Zwijndrecht, Hartlepool (UK) and Opole (Poland). Each of these yards has its own specialism in the design and fabrication of complex steel constructions for the worldwide offshore oil and gas market and the wind energy market. The reorganisation will not affect the Heerema Innovation Center.
