Together with my colleagues of the Marine Design and Engineering Department, I am responsible for designing steel structures for our dredging equipment and vessels. Whenever adjustments are needed to our dredging fleet, we provide a complete response: from conceiving the initial concept to building a 3D model and creating 2D production drawings. We do all this ourselves, without the help of an external design or engineering firm. This allows us to respond quickly and directly to the requested modifications. Gathering the required technical knowledge and sharing it with each other is therefore daily business for us.
From the moment a request becomes an assignment, we sit down with different departments to develop an initial concept. After that, I start working on a detailed design. I have complete control over this and can thus give my own creativity full rein.
