Are you a shipbuilding professional and interested in supervising challenging Refit projects? Are you a technical generalist who is looking for a broad technical job, focusing on new and sustainable technologies? Future Proof Shipping is looking for you!


As an Assistant Project Manager / Jr. Technical Superintendent, you are involved in challenging Refit projects of inland vessels. Existing inland vessels are being converted from polluting diesel propulsion into “zero emission” propulsion, based on hydrogen technology. At a later stage you will be responsible for the maintenance of the fleet. With your broad technical and communication skills, you ensure the smooth progress at the shipyard in accordance with the required quality and delivery time of the Refits.

Specific duties in this role include:

  • During the refits you will be the connecting link between the shipyard, various subcontractors and internal organisation including Engineering and project management.
  • Focus on excellent project results by performing checks and inspections.
  • Indirect managing of project employees on site and subcontractors.

  • Excellent communication skills in Dutch and English.
  • Passion for technology and a strong drive making the maritime sector sustainable.


Future Proof Shipping B.V. (FPS) (, offers zero-emissions shipping services to enable players across the value chain make the transition to zero-emissions. As a zero-emissions vessel owner, FPS aims to build and operate a fleet of 30 zero-emission inland and short-sea vessels over the next seven years which they will offer for charter to logistics service providers and cargo owners. FPS also facilitates other shipowners and stakeholders in the maritime sector who are ready to make the shift to zero-emissions, through technical support as well as project development and management.

In 2022, FPS has started to retrofit its first inland vessel, FPS Maas, to sail on hydrogen fuel cells to transport container cargo between The Netherlands and Belgium. Although fuel cells and hydrogen have already been tested in the marine industry, FPS expects this to be the first to demonstrate such a system for main propulsion at this scale, and in commercial operations.
