Mechanical Designer

Aalst, Belgium

We owe our position as world player to our technically innovative knowhow and the most modern dredging fleet in the world. Jan De Nul Group continues to invest in its fleet and in its people. The Marine Design and Engineering department is involved from the preliminary design of the vessels onwards. Each project is different and an optimum configuration is created every time. And if it doesn’t exist, we make it ourselves!

As a Designer you are responsible for the designing, processing and follow-up of production drawings for our dredging equipment, our dredging fleet and offshore structures. 

Your main tasks and responsibilities include:

  • Designing preliminary concepts.
  • Consulting with internal departments to determine design constraints.
  • Drawing up designs of components and steel structures for ships and offshore structures in 2D & 3D from initial design to production drawings.
  • Supporting the ship construction department in getting the preliminary design for new build vessels on paper.
  • Preparing the technical design package for logistics, maintenance and production.
  • Implementing design modifications and improvements, keeping the design data up to date.


You have a bachelor degree and you have experience in the design of steel or machine constructions. You feel closely connected to mechanical and CAD design, and you have good technical understanding.

Experience with marine design, ship structures or offshore structures is an advantage, along with knowledge of Siemens NX, AutoCAD and PTC Windchill.

You will work from our centralized offices in Aalst, Belgium.
