Een mooie bijdrage in het magazine van Shell Nederland over ons jarenlange partnerschap met de NAM en Shell.

Innovatie en nauwe samenwerking vormen de basis van de vele succesvolle internationale projecten die VONK als partner van NAM/Shell in de afgelopen 80 jaar heeft mogen uitvoeren.

In December 2019 VONK and Ampulz merged and rejoined forces to become one company again. Since then we have been working hard on the integration of the two companies. Teams and disciplines were merged where needed and all internal processes and quality systems are now fully aligned.

We now operate as one company and feel it is important to also present ourselves as one team striving to achieve one mission. This creates clarity and transparency. We are therefore moving forward under one brand with a strong legacy: VONK.

In 1937, Arjen Vonk, the son of a Frisian ice skate manufacturer, started selling and repairing radio transmitters and other household appliances from his store in Coevorden and over the years built multidisciplinary company servicing clients across the world.

Today, in honour of his name and legacy we continue as an international solution provider for Power Conversion, Electrical & Instrumentation (E&I) and Control & Automation (C&A) challenges.

With our experience of more than 80 years, we create value for our clients in a wide range of industries: Energy (renewables, nuclear, oil and gas), Chemical, Manufacturing and Defense.

Together as VONK, we can enable and accelerate your Energy Transition. We improve the power supply and control of your critical production processes and inspired by technological innovations we contribute to a more sustainable society.

VONK’s mission is to be a leading power and control system solution provider creating sustainable value for our clients by solving complex energy transition challenges.

Continuing as one brand also means we will continue with one integrated website and we want to invite you to visit our refreshed website www.iivonk.com.

We are of course still the same team with the same people, who you have trusted to work with and this will not change. With our integrated organization, our recent move of our workshop close to our office in Zwolle and our joint vision & mission we want to take our relationship with you to the next level and create more value for your company.

We look forward continuing to serve you under one brand: VONK.

Theo has been with VONK for 40 years now. We’d like to congratulate Theo with this extraordinary achievement. Theo, thank you for all your years of loyal service (in good- and bad times), your genuine interest in VONK and above all, your commitment.

Keep up the good work!

After the various simulations executed in the design phase of the project, Vonk / Ampulz is now proud to pass part of the inhouse functional test of the new 140MW DC Power Converter for IPP Garching.

IPP is a scientific institute that is researching Nuclear Fusion for Clean energy without waste. To enable the research, plasma of millions degrees Celsius is created. The plasma is floating in a magnetic field. Extreme strong magnets are creating the magnetic field to establish the floating plasma. Vonk / Ampulz builds the power converter to establish 140 MegaWatt DC power and all periphery to energize the magnets .

Lou van LieshoutWalter Zunnebeld (in picture) and the rest of the project team; Thanks for your continuous efforts and high quality power conversion expertise to make these challenging projects possible.
Vonk does apply the same power conversion technology in the production of #hydrogen.

VONK is proud to announce the successful completion the factory acceptance test of the first emergency power units for a Liquefied Natural Gas plant in Brunei.

This unique design was made by VONK to meet our client specific needs. The power generation unit is installed in a container building at ground level while the power distribution unit is
installed on top. This stacked design reduces the required plot space significantly and is very suitable for sites with space constraints. The first set has now been manufactured , fully tested and will begin the journey to Brunei for installation in early 2020.

The site installation and construction activities will be executed by our team in Brunei together with our local partner Zainal Daud.

Platform K83 is het vierde platform in de Noordzee dat de NAM laat moderniseren. Dit inmiddels onbemande gaswinningsplatform wordt op afstand bedienbaar en het gas wordt zo efficiënt, veilig en betaalbaar mogelijk gewonnen, met oog voor het milieu. Een belangrijk onderdeel zijn de 152 zonnepanelen. Zij leveren de benodigde elektriciteit voor de gaswinning.
