Within a generation, the passenger vessel industry will look completely different. Low and zero-emission vessels will become the norm. At C-Job, architectural innovation is our job. We started with solar and batteries on a ferry. Now we apply future fuels on designs sailing in just a few years. We support our clients to build better ships, become 100% sustainable, and run better because of it. The future demands it.

TESO | Texelstroom

C-Job Naval Architects developed the design of ro-ro ferry ‘Texelstroom’ in collaboration with her owner TESO.

The ‘Texelstroom’ is a double-ended ferry operating between the Dutch island Texel and Den Helder. C-Job created the initial, concept, and basic design together with her owner TESO. During the construction of the vessel, C-Job also supported TESO with building supervision at the shipyard.

The ro-ro ferry has a capacity of 1,750 passengers as well as 380 cars or 34 trucks and 261 cars. The vessel features innovative solutions such as a T-shaped beam to increase capacity, CNG/diesel hybrid propulsion, ‘peak shaving’ batteries, and solar panels across the top deck.

GVB | Ro-Ro ferry

C-Job created the concept design of a series of five sustainable car and passenger ferries for GVB Amsterdam. The vessels are fully electric, thus providing an emission-free transport solution. The ro-ro ferries are able to recharge their batteries in a maximum of four minutes – the time while passengers leave and board the ship. This allows the ferries to operate 24/7 without overnight charging. Each ferry has a capacity of 245 tons which equates to 400 passengers / 20 trucks / 4 trucks. The ferries will be constructed by Holland Shipyards Group. The first ferry is entered service in 2021.

C-Job Naval Architects developed a new mooring system for the ‘Dr. Wagemaker’ ferry owned by TESO. Due to this new application to keep the ferry in its place, the vessel saves up to 15,000 liters of fuel each month. The same mooring system is used for the ‘Texelstroom’.

In addition, C-Job was responsible for the engineering to fortify the hull of the ‘Dr. Wagemaker’.


C-Job supported Stena Line with the integration of a scrubber system in the ferries ‘Stena Transit’ and ‘Stena Transporter’.

C-Job assisted Stena Line with the integration of a Wärtsila scrubber system. Together with Damen Shiprepair Amsterdam, C-Job created the detail design for the scrubber integration on ‘Stena Transit’ and ‘Stena Transporter’ ferries.
