Presentations in the English Language

There are more and more international specialist joining the Dutch maritime industry and believe it is time to give them a place to meet each other, talk engineering and exchange thoughts on life stories, while enjoying a presentation and ”the borrel”.

The Royal Dutch Society of Maritime Industry Engineers (KNVTS) would like to use future opportunities to explore the wishes and interests of our internationals and see how we can come up with an interesting program, that stimulates participation in the public maritime debate and integration with Dutch engineers as well.

The KNVTS consist of 4 area’s:  North, Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Zeeland. To cover whole of the Netherlands we have the intention to organize 4 English lectures per years, each one of them in a different area. If this is successful, more will follow!

Wednesday 16th of December the KNVTS, Ulstein Design and Solutions and Ulstein Equipment are organizing a unique lecture in Amsterdam about their new Rock Dumping Vessel “Bravens” that is developed for Van Oord. Special attention was given to the full integration of both equipment and logistical processes. This resulted in a compact, cost efficient but also functional and capable vessel. During this lecture some of the innovations will be highlighted by Edwin van Leeuwen Managing Director and Arjan Boezemans, Head of Innovation. From two perspectives the “Naval Architect” and the “Mechanical Engineer”.

This lecture will be done in English. We would like to invite you to join us in this first session here in Amsterdam. The lecture itself is for free and if you would like to join for dinner please let us know in advance. It’s also easy to get there by public transportation.
