Mammoet Europe B.V., based in Schiedam, The Netherlands, has expressed its intention to sell the largest part of its maritime fleet to the Dutch company Hebo Maritiemservice B.V.
This decision was made after review of Mammoet’s company portfolio. As Mammoet increases its focus on offshore activities, Mammoet Maritime’s inland activities insufficiently support the company strategy.
Careful consideration of the future of Mammoet Maritime and its employees led to the intended sale of a major part of the vessels, floating cranes, barges and tugs to Hebo Maritiemservice B.V. This scenario of sale offers the best possible solution in order to preserve employment, whereby the number of redundancies will be minimised.
The maritime equipment will be exploited by Hebo Maritiemservice from Schiedam and Lelystad in the Netherlands and Mülheim in Germany. The real estate at Wiltonhaven, Schiedam, remains property of Mammoet Europe B.V.
The union in The Netherlands and the workers council of Mammoet Maritime B.V. have been informed on June, 10.
