Marino Nieuwhof | senior project manager ships

‘I manage projects from the customer’s initial request right through to final delivery. Many of those projects are aimed at developing an efficient hull design and propulsion system suited to the vessel in question. Optimalisations like these are always challenging, because every vessel design is different. My colleagues and I regularly have to test in our basins whether the design performs as it should. That’s always a tense moment. I’m always happy when we come up with a good design for the client that can be immediately implemented for the ship. As such my job isn’t confined to just managing projects; I’m also concerned with their substance. And that’s what makes this job so interesting and satisfying. Plus, I like the working atmosphere and openness at MARIN. Everyone pulls together to deliver quality for our clients.’
