Econowind is looking for Application specialists

The position
In this position, you are co-responsible in a team for the proper functioning of our systems at customer sites.
You will sometimes sail along to train crew and carry out service / maintenance.

The position can be combined with production support: help build the systems you will be sailing with later.

We are looking for
We are looking for a number of employees who will work in a pool of seafarers to operate and maintain our systems at customers’ premises and, if necessary, to build them in our factory in Zeewolde. A maritime education or background is a requirement. Flexibility is a prerequisite.

We offer
A fun, flexible, (possibly part-time) job in which you can develop yourself with numerous career opportunities and a good salary. You will work in a pleasant team of professionals in an informal environment. The pool has room for full-time and part-time employees. You will see many different places of the world.

You offer

  • Flexible deployment within a pool of seafarers.
  • A no-nonsense attitude.
  • Communicative skills, the ability to transfer knowledge to others.
  • 2 right hands.

Your talent
You find it a challenge to perform your tasks independently and you keep an overview in changing situations that characterise shipping. You are also customer-friendly and accurate. You are good at improvising.

The shipping industry interests you and you enjoy travelling.

Who we are
Econowind B.V. is a leading company that focuses on wind propulsion of seagoing vessels. Six years after its establishment, Econowind is leading in the installation of “VentoFoil” sail systems: a wing that works like a sail and saves about 10% fuel on sea-going vessels. We are a small company that expects to grow strongly in the coming years. Customer satisfaction, innovation and ambition are our keywords.

The terms of employment
This is a position in a seafaring pool of a few employees. Some of them will help out in production in between periods of sailing, some are only on call. We offer a good salary and excellent working conditions.

Extended VentiFoils for MV Ankie

MV Ankie after installation of the extended VentiFoils!

The VentiFoils were disassembled from the vessel in the end of 2021 with the purpose to extend the VentiFoils from 10m to 13m.
Performance tests are being carried out at this moment as the vessel is back sailing with VentiFoils.
