The Association of Dutch Suppliers in the Oil and Gas Industry and Offshore Renewable Industry
The Oil, Gas and Offshore Renewable supply industry in the Netherlands belongs to the Top 5 of the world. Established nearly half a century ago, the association IRO is an independent non-profit organisation that supports and promotes the interests of its nearly 450 member companies.
Acting as the gateway to Dutch suppliers in the energy industry, the IRO mission is ultimately aimed at maintaining and strengthening the position of the Dutch Oil, Gas and Offshore Renewable supply industry by creating a level playing field for its members. A sharp focus on cost efficiency, innovation and sustainability amongst the IRO members are instrumental to achieve this goal.
The IRO members consist of a wide variety of both multinationals and SMEs. They represent the entire supply chain within the Oil, Gas and Offshore Renewable industry, with activities covering: Engineering & Consultancy, Construction & Fabrication, Plant & Equipment Supply, Contracting & Installation, Exploration & Production and Personnel & HSE, both for offshore upstream oil & gas and offshore renewables (wind and marine energy).
The association focuses on three important topics that are vital for the continuity of the industry: Trade & Export Promotion, Innovation & Technology and Human Capital & Education. The range of services that IRO provides to its members varies from maintaining government & NGO relations and facilitating networking opportunities within the IRO community, to participating in international trade missions as well as in exhibitions and providing Business Intelligence and training courses.
