Company information

The historic term PERIPLUS stems from the Greek word “Periploi” literally meaning sea voyage around a coastline. In ancient navigation of Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans a Periplus was a manuscript document that listed in order the ports and coastal landmarks, with approximate distances between, that the captain of a vessel could expect to find along a shore. These manuscripts are believed to be the first navigational charts ever produced.

The company PERIPLUS was founded in 1998 by Mr. Giel Menijn, whose reputation and experience are well-known and respected throughout the offshore oil industry. In recognition of the increasing demand to provide expertise and advice, in 2004 he decided to expand the activities of his business by the set-up of PERIPLUS HOLDING BV and its subsidiaries.

With the transition to this new company structure PERIPLUS approached Mr. Bart van Mierlo, who was the owner/director of an outsourcing company, also specializing in the offshore industry. His background as a geologist / geophysicist and his corporate experience within the industry were considered welcome assets to support the expansion of PERIPLUS.

Besides the “traditional” expertise on hydrographic issues, the PERIPLUS-group focuses on providing her clients with high-quality consultancy services and project support in areas of geophysics / geology, engineering support, environmental issues, GIS, data-processing, data-management and underwater archaeology.

The PERIPLUS-group operates from a central office in Amsterdam (The Netherlands). However, when required, expertise can and will be relocated to accommodate the demands of our Client’s projects nationally as well as internationally.
