Connected: Hillcon HSCX1500GLS-E

Friday 12 May 2023 saw the official handing over of the key to our new HSCX1500GLS-E plug-in electric piling rig at Cape Holland in Beilen.

This investment is the largest in the over 60-year history of Vroom Funderingstechnieken and guarantees a significant step on the way to the zero-emissions building site. The directors, shareholders and employees of Hillcon and Vroom witnessed the key being handed over. There was time to reflect on the constructive collaboration between the two companies and their employees. A collaboration thanks to which the rig was developed, customised and modified over the past 679 days.

Niels Bakker, director of operations of Vroom Funderingstechnieken, praised the commitment of the personnel, specifically naming Jeroen Vroom for the input and sharing of his vision with Alex Brouwer, his fellow initiator, Alex Vroom for his work in the context of obtaining grants, and Ronald Pronk and Niels Veerman for their vision in the field of operations and deployment of the new ‘muscle man’ in practical terms. The festive key ceremony was rounded off with a group lunch.
