Meyer Group acquires 50% stake in Dutch naval architects

The shipbuilder Meyer Group has acquired a 50% stake in Dutch naval architecture firm C-Job Naval Architects, forming a strategic partnership.

C-Job is a ship design and engineering company with offices in the Netherlands, Ukraine, the USA, Greece, Bulgaria and Poland. The Dutch naval architecture firm concentrates on superyachts and passenger ships, and offers mechanical and system engineering, and research and development into autonomous shipping, data science, and energy, as well as naval architecture, retrofit and laser scanning.

It also offers Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) compliance calculations, and a decarbonisation tool so vessels can comply with the IMO Carbon Intensity Indicator – all with the aim of creating 100% sustainable ships.

C-Job CEO and Co-Founder Job Volwater commented:

Meyer Group, launched in 1795, is one of the largest shipyards in the world with three shipyards in Papenburg and Rostock in Germany, plus Turku in Finland, and employs 3,300 engineers, designers and architects across Europe. After expanding its production and construction halls, it delivered the world’s first cruise ship, AIDAnova, with a low-emission LNG propulsion system in 2018.

Malte Poelmann, CTO at Meyer Group, said:

The acquisition will enable the two businesses to work together in the alternative marine fuels sector, with a particular focus on enhancing the sustainability of cruise vessels.

Basjan Faber, CFO and Co-Founder of C-Job, concluded:
