In Memoriam: Wim Hardeveld


It is with the saddest regret that we announce the passing away of Wim Hardeveld, founder of MACH10, on 28th December 2022 at the age of 63. Wim lost a five-month battle against cancer. He departed this life surrounded by his family in his home in Groenekan. Wim is survived by his children Tim, Bart and Anne. 

After a very successful international career with Shell, in which he was greatly supported by his late wife Hanneke, Wim founded MACH10 in 2010 and grew a machinery advisory and energy transition consultancy business. His expert knowledge combined with entrepreneurship and an eye for people made him well known and highly regarded in the industry. 

Over the recent years Wim had already matured the organisation and delegated much of the activities to the rest of the MACH10 team. In the past months, he has secured business continuity for MACH10 through adding Stefano Bisson and Wim Ravesloot as shareholders to the Hardeveld family interest in MACH10 Energy B.V. Through MACH10 Energy B.V., clients will continue to be served with advice and support related to machinery and equipment subjects as well as emission reduction and energy transition matters. 

Over the years, Wim has been a great inspiration to people working for and with MACH10, both professionally and personally. He was an incredibly sharp and competent professional, and yet very humble, always approaching people with kindness and empathy. His never-failing optimism, thinking in opportunities and solutions as well as his drive for improvements have inspired many people. 

Wim will be greatly missed. His legacy will live on in the hearts of everyone he interacted with.
