Who We Are
Nordmare Engineering is a small, fast-growing startup located in the north of the Netherlands
The team at Nordmare offers consultancy and support in a multitude of projects and has experience working on a fascinating range of floating and non-floating structures. This ranges from small workboats and big yachts, via container-, passenger- and heavy cargo vessels of up to 170 meters, to beautiful architectural bridges and buildings.
Nordmare Engineering was founded in 2018 by shipbuilding professional Berjan Kooi, who has been active in the industry for over three decades.
‘It never ceases to amaze me what people can think of and build. Being part of this fascinating technical world has provided me with a large network to rely on, co-operate with and contribute to. Especially that: being able to contribute in a way that brings benefits to all is what drives me. Being able to add, to be part of, to co-operate and be a partner is what may bring us together in a future project.’
We don’t need to be in the center of attention. Frequently working in a chain, cooperating as part of our customers team, we help making things possible but do not ‘own’ the end product.
Enabling our customers to do the scoring, we will be the assist. This level of trust also means that you protect the intellectual property of the client and you are not the one showing off to the world.
Being able to say ‘I contributed to that ship, and that and that one…’
Our own designs are often design studies, or practice runs for our students, brainwave projects that we take one level further and act as a catalyst for other versions or new ideas. This is our way of investing and creating references for the future.
