Besides managing these innovations Erik coordinated the production outfitting of MY Musashi during his employment by De Vries Makkum.

The second Damen Offshore Carrier, Maersk Connector is delivered to Maersk Supply service. She will sail in a long term charter for DeepOcean. The concept of this highly versatile modular platform was developed by the Damen Engineering team led by Erik van Prooijen. The 138 meter long and 27,5 meter wide vessel is capable of carrying a 7000 ton cable reel. The development of the platform was a true challenge for the entire engineering team. Stability, regulations, DP requirements, etc. it all had to be taken into account during the development of this new concept.

Together with the Feadship Sales team, Erik (as manager New Projects for De Vries Makkum) has developed the specification and budget of Motoryacht Madame Gu and managed the pre-design process together with Feadship’s De Voogt Naval Architects.

Motoryacht Tommy. We have done the entire project management for the new build of this yacht. This aluminium yacht is a one of a kind for its size. It is a mega-yacht in every aspect but its size. With twin MAN powered waterjets, she reaches speeds over 35 knots. The noise levels on board are exceptionally low, even at these high speeds. The interior is made to the highest standards in the megayacht industry, it was a challenge to get these techniques to work in a yacht of 18 meters long with lightweight materials.
MV Artic junior. On behalf of Bijlsma we have arranged the contract, development, engineering and purchasing for this project. The project was sold to the Artic Group, a company that is specialized in providing fish food to the Salmon farms in the Norwegian fjords. The vessel has a highly sophisticated loading and discharging system for fish feed. Very special about this project is that it is in fact the conversion of an existing new hull for a freighter into this concept. The hull was shortened to be able to reach the ports, the decks were raised and closed.
MV Cembrook. On behalf of Bijlsma we have arranged the contract, development, engineering and subcontracting for this project. The vessel was sold to Brise Hamburg, a company that is specialized in the transport of cement. This project is actually a conversion of an existing new hull into a sophisticated cement carrier. The loading and discharging system is based on a pneumatic slide system and is fully integrated in the design of the vessel. The vessel was lengthened, the decks were raised, 3 large generators were installed, the loading and discharging was installed, etc.

4 x Freezer vessel. This series of 4 freezer vessels are designed for the transportation of cargo’s like tuna, etc. Very special characteristics were the modernized ship-to-ship transfer system with the union-purchase principle, the full frozen cargo spaces which can be maintained at different temperatures. For this project, Maritime Projects was contracted to perform the overall project management of the engineering. Together with the team from Groot Ship Design we have delivered the full basic engineering package to the Guangxin Shipbuilding & Heavy Inustry CO.,LTD  (GSHI) yard in Zongshan (China). We have been traveling to GSHI several times to explain what we have designed and how this should be incorporated in their detailed engineering model.
The GTT115 from Dynamiq yachts built in Italy. This yacht is a one of a kind design in terms of looks and naval architecture. With the Fast Displacment Hull Form from Van Oossaanen Naval Architects, this vessel has a very low fuel-consumption and high comfort levels. Due to the futuristic design with lots of forms and shapes, it was not very easy for the hull builders. However, the result was stunning and the project was finished in only 6 months building time. On behalf of G&G we have negotiated the contract for the hull construction and managed the commercial parts of project management during the project.
MV Juice express. On March 13th MV Juice express has been delivered by GSHI yard to Seatrade in The Netherlands.  This freighter is a unique design to transport different kinds of juices in stainless steel tanks. Both orange- and pineapple juice can be transported in frozen and cooled conditions. The vessel has the patented Groot Crossbow, delivering very good fuel economics. GSD, being the designer of this vessel, has contracted Maritime Projects to perform the overall project management of the engineering; this contained the delivery of the full basic engineering package to the GSHI yard in Zongzhan (China). We have been traveling to GSHI several times to explain what we have designed and how this should be incorporated in their detailed engineering model.

The engineering, installation and commissioning was done by the technical specialists in cooperation with DW Maritiem and Shipyard de Boer, Sliedrecht.

The TSHD Reimerswaal (6000m3) was developed with one key characteristic in mind: flexibility. As a result, the Reimerswaal can be used for ship-to-shore pumping, rainbowing, discharging , dry discharging, and rock fill depositing. The multi-command chair on the ship’s bridge puts no less than 13 screens at the duty officer's fingertips, giving the duty officer full control and a comprehensive overview of the entire dredging and navigation process. With its 12 buckets on a vertical bucket wheel, the ship’s dry discharge system can scoop a layer of material from the hold in both directions at a rate of 2,500m3 per hour. On behalf of eL-Tec we have arranged the electric system on board of this sophisticated dredger for Reimerswaal dredging. Starting with the commercial process, technical specification and budgeting, up to project management (planning, budget progress, forecasting, attending building meeting, etc). The engineering, installation and commissioning was done by the technical specialists in cooperation with the owner and Shipyard Kooiman, Dordrecht.
