The world of offshore energy is in transition. Because of the low oil prices and the Paris Agreement the focus is shifting from oil and gas to renewable energy. In current issue of Maritime Holland we focus on these developments with an article about the decommissioning of North Sea platforms and with an interview with the captain of the offshore installation vessel Aeolus. Furthermore, we take a look at the Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference, held on 25 and 26 October in Amsterdam RAI.

Next to that, the guest column of this issue is provided by Peter Scheijgrond, director of MET-support. Also there is an article about the design of a Flettner Freighter, a wind assisted propulsion concept. Lastly, the vessel reviewed are Eeva VG, built by Royal Bodewes, the Plug-in Hybrid Watertaxi built by Alumax Boats and Thecla Bodewes Shipyard Harlingen built Terra Plana.
