Alewijnse Marine Systems, a leading system integrator, is closing 2012 with a strong order book that demonstrates the underlying strength of the top yards in the superyacht industry.
As a system integrator Alewijnse works with yards around the world, supplying specialist electrical engineering services up to and including the installation and integration of entire electrical systems for the largest superyachts and megayachts.
Alewijnse is currently working on seven superyachts at the engineering (design) stage and on a further seven superyacht projects in build across four yards in the Netherlands and Turkey. Refit work for the company is also strong. Recent new launches include superyachts such as M/Y Nirvana and two yachts by Amels, plus the 36m explorer yacht Lola by Peer Gynt Yachts.
Kees van Doorn, business development manager for Alewijnse Marine Systems, commented, “We have been fortunate to have received a strong inflow of orders over 2012. This reflects a return to the superyacht market of mostly experienced owners who were waiting for greater stability in the global economy before placing their orders for new yachts. The majority of the yachts on which we are working are in the 60 to 110m range, making them very significant projects.”
Alewijnse Turkey and Alewijnse Qatar are the latest additions to the Group. The increased workload has sharpened demand for experienced engineers. Alewijnse is actively recruiting across a range of disciplines both in the Netherlands and overseas.
