Jan studied at the University of Ghent and graduated as a naval architect in 1994. Since 2007, he has helped develop projects around the world that fall outside the classic canon of marine construction and whose result relies on the symbiosis of different disciplines. As such he maintains close relations with experts, consultants, universities and manages several innovation projects. During the tender and realisation of the Prins Hendrik Zanddijk, he was technical manager and co-ordinated all design aspects.
