Niels de Vries
Lead Naval Architect at C-Job Naval Architects


After finishing his Bachelor of Engineering in Naval Architecture in early 2014, Niels de Vries started at C-Job Naval Architects. He’s been working there for more than five years currently as Lead Naval Architect. While working at C-Job, Niels completed his Master of Science, including a Pre-Master, in Marine Technology which concluded with his thesis ‘Safe and effective application of ammonia as a marine fuel’ in June 2019. Niels is a strong supporter of renewable fuels such as hydrogen, ammonia and methanol and believes synthetic fuel production can be a great solution to use the overcapacity of renewable energy effectively.
