Wat meer over ons


P&MS a new Technical Service and Service Provider   

A solid partner for your business

With this letter we would like to introduce you to Propulsion & Maritime Services.

This maritime advice & service provider was founded by Johan Verlaan.

In our more than 25 years of experience as a service provider for the Maritime sector, we have mainly made ourselves useful by, among other things, as a Service Engineer for (gas) engines in the Benelux and later as a Propulsion Specialist to be deployed worldwide. This from project management of new build project to conversions and large repair works, to providing services to Control Pitch Propellers (CPP), Azimuth thruster (incl. Retractable), tunnel thrusters, bow / stern thrusters, propeller / propeller blade repairs and propeller shaft sealing systems. As a logical consequence, work was also carried out on related products and systems. All this for merchant shipping, navy, luxury yachts, off-shore, short-sea vessel, dredgers, coastguard, tugs, fishing cruise ships and inland shipping. All this on behalf of ship owners, ship management offices or shipyards.


Further more we have gained experience as; Propulsion Service Manager in Dubai, Senior Quality Manager in a propulsion production factory in China, Senior Project Manager for worldwide projects, General Manager Services for the maritime sector and power plants in Nigeria and Superintendent for supervising worldwide docking and repairs of ships. Because we were regularly confronted with the fact that it is becoming more and more challenging for ship-owners and clients to obtain quality, good, reliable and competitive services. The idea arose to share this technical knowledge, know-how and organizational skills with the cultural experiences with the Maritime sector.
