Eekels Technology, possibly a new name for you on the yacht market, whilst still a familiar one. You have probably come across Eekels Technology on several occasions already without even realising it. It is the company behind Marpower Shore Converters, of which Eekels has already delivered more than 1000 units in the yacht-building sector. Eekels has also supplied the electrical system for Icon Yachts, among others, for several years now.
That gave Eekels a taste for more, and in 2019, Eekels Technology took over the former De Keizer Marine Engineering, thereby making a major step on the yacht market. Eekels’ technology is the perfect fit for the megayachts sector. If you also take the specific yachts knowledge and expertise of the former De Keizer Marine Engineering in the areas of consultancy, engineering, project management, installation, and service and maintenance, a powerful company is created for this market.
"I am pleased that we have restarted DKME under the wings of Eekels, which means that the craftsmanship and knowledge of the DKME employees has been retained and that it forms an important part of Eekels."
Hendrik de Haan I General Manager Eekels Technology B.V.
