Dredging, Shipbuilding, Towage


Over the last 28 years, since the founding of iPS, the Maritime department has been one of the cornerstones of the organization. Adriaan Brok, “Currently we serve, through a variety of markets, over 90 clients located globally, including (but not limited to) Dredging, Towage, Merchant Marine and other specialised Maritime niches.” Adriaan continues, “We realise that every client has their own particular operational requirements and in order to achieve the best results possible the iPS team, in conjunction with both the client and the candidate, approaches this hurdle with flexibility, efficiency and an open-mind. We always deliver a quality performance with a positive attitude.”

You can find our ‘Powerful People’ all over the world, operating on projects in over 50 countries, from the cold fjords of Norway to the toasty deserts of the Middle East. Global Super projects such as the New Suez Canal expansion are exactly where iPS excels. Adriaan, “We supplied both quantity and quality for almost all aspects of the project personnel. Our capable candidates worked on the Cutter Suction Dredgers that were at the forefront of the project and also the supporting equipment such as the multicats, supply vessels and sand-fill experts. iPS was an important facet in the full scope of the entire project. However, we also operate  closer to home by supplying personnel to Rotterdam harbour. It doesn`t matter where or what the job is, the iPS team of Powerful People is there to help!”

Adriaan, “The iPS Maritime Department currently consists of a team of eight employees with over 40 years of combined experience between them in the Maritime & HR industries. Our strength stems from the diversity of the team. The combination of our different backgrounds, operational knowledge and perspectives, gives us the business acumen and maritime expertise to answer to the needs of both clients and candidates.”
