Supervisor Decommissioning

Hoondert Services & Decommissioning (HSD) operates a yard in the seaport of Flushing that is located in the South-West of the Netherlands. Our yard supports a variety of offshore activities in the North Sea where dismantling and recycling of decommissioned offshore platforms is our main activity. Oil and Gas companies are our clients.


The platforms are removed offshore by heavy lift contractors who will bring the structures to our yard to be unloaded onto the quay. The structures vary in weight and dimensions; from 250 to 7500 ton to 90 m tall. Once on the yard we prepare a safe working environment on the structure and subsequently take them apart in fragments that, after segregation, can easily be transported and further processed by waste handling companies. Hazardous materials are an important aspect in our work.


The work is done with heavy equipment by a team of specialists, machine operators and skilled workers. HSD follows the highest environmental and safety standards in executing the projects.


Please refer to our website for further information.


Currently we would like to expand our team with a supervisor.
