CAPE Holland History

CAPE Holland was founded in 2002 by a father and son team set on extending the family links within the piling sector, which began in the 19th century. Altough the company started as an international piling equipment trading company, they soon started engineering and constructing special equipment for the piling industry.

With a large fleet of hydraulic  impact and vibro hammers for sale and rent, CAPE Holland deepened their involvement in the offshore market. Our breaktrough succes offshore was the development of a multiple linked vibro-hammer for the Riffgat Offshore Wind Farm project in 2012, driving 30 monopiles of 750 tonnes, fast and silently into the German North Sea floor.

Since 2014, CAPE Holland has become part of the FoundOcean Group of companies, a privately held UK-headquartered company with offices in Europe, the Gulf of Mexico, South East Asia, India and the Middle East for rapid deployment of specialist grouting and piling equipment. The group comprises FoundOcean Ltd and CAPE Holland.
