Burando acquires Martens Cleaning

Burando Maritime Services has acquired Zeeland-based Martens Cleaning, which primarily operates as a collector and processor of maritime oil-water streams in the Netherlands and Belgium. With this strategic expansion, Burando is taking an important step in the further growth of its Environmental activities and is also further committed to circularity within the maritime sector.

Martens Cleaning has around 75 employees and is based in Nieuwdorp (Zeeland), where it serves clients in the Netherlands and Belgium. Martens is distinctive in the (maritime) waste collection domain due to its ability to process collected waste streams in-house into reusable mineral raw material.

Martens’ operation will become part of Burando’s Environmental division, within which its existing waste collection business is operated by Nature Group International Slop Disposal (NISD). The combination of NISD and Martens will create a player with a leading market position in the Netherlands and Belgium in maritime waste collection. In addition, the combination enables NISD to process itself the oil-water streams it already collects into raw material products, thus giving Burando a big step towards circularity.
