Meet the nominees of the Maritime Awards Gala 2017 September 2017 - In just under 7 weeks, the Dutch maritime sector will gather at the RDM Onderzeebootloods (submarine warehouse) in Rotterdam, ready for the launch of the Maritime Awards. In the meantime, we are bursting with excitement whilst awaiting the winners to be announced on Monday 6th November 2017.

Nevesbu Nominations
Two Nevesbu employees have been nominated in two categories, the Maritime Designer Awards and the Maritime RNLN Van Hengel-Spengler Award. In the films given here below, Marijn Hage and Leon Rietveld briefly describe the nature of their innovative research.
Leon Rietveld has been exploring opportunities to optimise the propulsion of submarines. His goal was to reduce the size and weight of propulsion systems. His research shows that this is possible and the results are relevant for the intended replacement of the Walrus-class submarines. Watch Leon Rietveld's film here:
Marijn Hage has developed the Volume Estimation Tool (VET) in order to quickly determine, during early design phases, a suitable starting point for the main dimensions, volume and sub-volumes of a diesel-electric submarine. Watch Marijn Hage’s film here:
