Amsterdam IJmuiden Offshore Ports

Association for cooperation and knowledge exchange

Amsterdam IJmuiden Offshore Ports (AYOP) is an active association of around 80 companies and government bodies in the North Sea Canal region focused on the offshore extraction of gas & oil and wind energy. The organisation has a strong focus on offshore wind maintenance (including cable logistics), drilling projects for gas exploration, adjustments and maintenance of work vessels and platforms, and the disassembly of offshore constructions and vessels.

Finding innovative business opportunities

AYOP promotes the region to companies within the Netherlands and abroad as an ideal place to establish themselves. The arrival of Hollandse Kust wind farms off the coast of IJmuiden makes the region even more interesting to companies. In addition, the association helps members find innovative business opportunities in the offshore sector. For example, AYOP recently organised an introductory supply meeting for its members with Vattenfall, which will be building the Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farms.

Cooperation and knowledge exchange

AYOP also stimulates cooperation and knowledge exchange among members via activities such as regular meetings.
The active involvement and cooperation of the members is above average, which benefits all companies.

Joint trade show participation

By participating in (international) exhibitions together, all members (large and small) have the opportunity to present their company. AYOP takes care of all organisational aspects of exhibiting at a trade show, supporting members and providing them with special price agreements. Joint exhibition visits abroad are also organised by the association.


AYOP offers members access to a regional network of government authorities, training institutes and offshore companies. In doing so it promotes the interests of the offshore
sector in the region and, together with vocational training schools, initiates programmes in line with the requirements of member employees
