Thanks to a collaboration with Anker Rotterdam, YoreOn.com became available in the historic harbour of Rotterdam. The exact location is the Boerengat on the famous Admiraliteit quayside. Robert Viëtor, owner of Anker Rotterdam, explains how this came about.
Anker Rotterdam is a Rotterdam based family business spanning over eighty years. In 1932 the electrical wholesaler Anker Electro B.V saw the light of day. In 2012 we changed our name to Anker Rotterdam B.V. and expanded our services. In addition to our role as wholesaler, we also started offering consultancy services in the field of sustainable lighting solutions and smart solutions for buildings, , shipping and port industries.
By now, the fourth generation has become active in our company. My son Bas and I tackled the project at the Rotterdamsche Admiraliteit marina. We came into contact with harbour master André Eleveld, the initiator of the marina. Since the start of its operation in 2014, this marina has been using a metering system to measure electricity usage. That caused a lot of hassle. There is a lot of activity in the marina: ranging from small boats to large vessels with air conditioning and entire kitchens. Let alone permanent berths, which are sometimes empty, allowing others to use that place on a temporarily basis. This caused many problems with our old metering system. The system caused too much discussion. André was looking for a smarter solution to enable visitors to activate and pay for power.
Some research brought us to YoreOn.com, the smart solution from Seijsener and Involtum. My other son, Hanno, is an entrepreneur in the IT world. He has the skills to read and understand the existing metering system – which was intelligent, but also very complex. This way we, as Anker Rotterdam B.V., were able to offer an all-in-one solution. Together with a good cabinet builder, I designed a great pedestal in which we integrated the YoreOn module. Bas then completed the project together with an installation agency. It is great to be able to carry out such a project as a father with two sons with joined forces – and expertise.
Bright future ahead
We have great confidence in the YoreOn transaction platform from Seijsener and Involtum and certainly see more possibilities going forward. We see a bright future ahead for our cooperation with Involtum and We expect that we will use YoreOn.com more often.
