Maritime Valley

  • Business owner: Koen Burgers – Damen
  • Project coach: Jelle Vijfhuize – GKN Fokker
  • Team: Boskalis, Damen, Oceanco, Veth Propulsion, ConnectPlaza
  • June – July 2019

Within the Drecht Cities region, we have many global players in the Maritime Sector that deal with similar issues related to procurement and supply chain management. We are globally managing assets and maintaining them, by sending people, tools and parts all over the world.

Again a multidisciplinary team of young professionals is challenged. Young professionals from Boskalis, Damen, Oceanco, Veth Propulsion and ConnectPlaza have eight days to create a concept of a new market approach, challenging the mindset from an individual market approach to a joint ecosystem. This leads to the concept of “One Maritime Valley”: a joint pool of knowledge, resources, spares and tools. Is there willingness and feasibility among companies to join forces? What are the benefits of sharing resources, spares and tools? And how will this affect the economy?
