We have a winner!

We are very happy to announce that the idea ‘Establishing a zero emission Handysize Bulkcarrier’ by Peter Gast Shipping GmbH has won the Design Sprint Days.

As a prize a selection of our designers and engineers will work together with them for five days in a Design Sprint, with the aim of developing a rapid ‘protoype’ to demonstrate the feasibility. We look forward to working together on this exciting project!

  • Sustainability / energy transition / emission reduction;
  • Bringing shipbuilding back to the North (of the Netherlands);
  • The changing role of the human factor in shipping / autonomous shipping.
