Senior Business Development Manager, Kotug International B.V.

Almar van Herk - PIC

Almar has been fundamental in the development of the revolutionary E-Pusher Series. Having 15+ years of experience working at leading shipping company KOTUG, he jointly managed to develop a modular pusher tug capable of handling a variety of energy sources around an AC/DC switchboard.

Main features of the E-Pusher Series are the usage of an Electric Vessel (EV) frame, a polyethylene (PE) floating body and the modular use of components resulting in a one-of-a-kind electric powered pusher tug. Having a background in innovation, business development and strategic positioning, Almar will present a narrative how this vessel came to life and is now sailing 100% zero emission for account of Cargill in the port of Amsterdam.
