Jort Brouwer started his career in Naval Architecture in 1987 as a draughtsman in a small naval architects studio near Amsterdam. In 1988 he joined Allseas to work on many projects, one of them being the first concepts of the Solitaire pipe lay vessel. Looking to broaden his horizon, Jort decided to free-lance for a while, initially in the Netherlands and subsequently in Singapore, Japan and Italy. Over this period he was involved in many design projects ranging from large private motor- and sailing yachts to crane barges and patrol vessels. Upon returning to the Netherlands in 2006 he decided to focus on installation and exploration vessels, and joined GustoMSC. At Gusto he coordinated many basic design projects, and also went to China to supervise the detailed design of one of GustoMSC’s drillships. In 2010 Jort founded Dutch Offshore Innovators, and with a team of young engineers as well as seasoned specialists, the company is carrying out innovative conceptual designs as well as complex basic designs.
