  • You supervise and document acceptance tests at subcontractors. You are also involved in commissioning automation systems on board of our ships;
  • You are innovative and open to exploring and implementing new technologies and methods.

You work intensively with various disciplines within the Automation and Electrical Engineering team. This position is based at our head office in Rotterdam.

ABOUT YOU
