Marine & Offshore HVAC Russia
The Russian branch of Heinen & Hopman Engineering BV in the Netherlands was founded in 2012.
For a long period, maritime construction in Russia focused heavily on military vessels. Civil shipbuilding had been neglected since Soviet times, causing terminal commercial decline. In the first decade of the 21st century, however, shipbuilding in Russia expanded thanks to government investment in the construction of new icebreakers, arctic tankers, drilling platforms and supply vessels for military and civil needs. This gave Russian shipyards a great opportunity to grow and develop.
Modern and progressive
New technologies in marine equipment to satisfy the needs of ship owners have since become vital for shipyards. Heinen & Hopman launched its office in Russia to bring the world’s leading HVAC solutions to a market that recognises Dutch technologies as being modern and progressive. Heinen & Hopman brought its comprehensive approach to engineering, manufacturing, supply and maintenance closer to its clients in Russia, Ukraine and Russian-speaking countries, avoiding any barriers in language or business style.
Heinen & Hopman opened its own office in Russia, directly under Heinen & Hopman Netherlands, to provide direct service and high quality maintenance to any project in this vast country. A local branch allows customers straightforward and fast contact with the manufacturer, and ensures the special needs of any projects are followed closely.
Heinen & Hopman Russia has partners in every shipbuilding region in the country, from the North-West (St Petersburg, Vyborg, Kaliningrad) to the Far East (Sakhalin) and South (Astrakhan). We provide design & engineering for projects and equipment supply & maintenance for clients. In cooperation with Russian installation companies, Heinen & Hopman also guarantees local service for clients wherever they are located.
Heinen & Hopman main sectors of activity are civil shipbuilding and offshore. The company supplies air-conditioning systems, mechanical ventilation and central heating, provision cooling plants and refrigeration.
The year in which the office was opened brought new projects in several regions of Russia and Ukraine. In parallel with the developments of shipbuilding in Russia, Heinen & Hopman intends to expand business contacts and offer new HVAC technologies to the market.
Heinen & Hopman Russia provides the following services
- Engineering / design for HVAC

In 2012, Heinen & Hopman was awarded a contract to deliver HVAC systems for four icebreakers owned by the state company Rosmorport. The equipment will be installed on one of the vessels in Shipyard Yantar, Kaliningrad, and on the three others in Vyborg Shipyard.
Long-term and successful cooperation with Pella Shipyard has allowed Heinen & Hopman to serve the niche market for HVAC equipment for tugs and small vessels.
New HVAC equipment will also be delivered for the biggest Russian oil and gas supplier LUKOIL for the offshore platforms in Caspian Sea.
The new and fruitful cooperation in Sakhalin island in Far East of Russia leads to the new contracts with Sakhalin Energy and Fluor Daniel in partnership with the local company Techno Trest M, one of the most experienced HVAC installation company.
The new opportunities for Heinen & Hopman were apparent with the contracts on delivery of HVAC equipment for the vessels owned by the Ministry of Defense of Russia. The equipment for those vessels of civil purposes, however, will conform to high standards of semi-naval ships.
Heinen & Hopman brought its comprehensive approach to engineering, manufacturing, supply and maintenance closer to its clients in Russia, Ukraine and Russian-speaking countries, avoiding any barriers in language or business style.
