We are thrilled to welcome our members to a company visit to the Smulders site.

Smulders is an international steel construction company with more than 1,000 employees working across offices in Belgium, Poland and the United Kingdom. Being part of the Infrastructure branch of the Eiffage Group, Smulders has a proven track record in the engineering, construction, supply and assembly of heavy, technical complex and architectonic steel constructions.

Along the river Scheldt, the former Cockerill shipyard in Hoboken is home to a subsidiary of the group, Smulders Projects. Since 2001, the former shipyard is used, amongst others, to produce steel foundations for offshore windmills, substations and other large constructions. As a pioneer in this industry, Smulders Projects has evolved to a market leader when it comes to the construction of offshore wind farm components, with a track record of over 2,160 foundations that have been built and delivered in Hoboken.

On Thursday 17th November (18h00), YoungShip Belgium has the unique opportunity to get introduced to this innovative Belgian company and explore the immense facilities in Hoboken. Once the beating heart of Belgium’s shipbuilding industry and now playing a vital role in Belgium’s transition towards providing green and sustainable energy!


As we will visit the site, you will have to wear PPE. Please bring your own PPE if possible.
