About Jorne Langelaan

Founder & CEO

Capt. Jorne Langelaan is the Founder and CEO of EcoClipper. He has extensive experience in the maritime industry.

At the age of 12 he went to sea as a ship’s boy on board a motor cargo ship that belonged to his uncle. His first job on board a sailing ship was a few years later on a topsail schooner, sailing with passengers over the North Sea and Dutch lakes. This was followed in the 1990s by a job on the famous cargo schooner, Avontuur, in the Caribbean.

These experiences inspired him to acquire his certificates at the Enkhuizen Maritime College (Enkhuizer Zeevaartschool) to captain coastal vessels, ocean-going vessels and cargo sailing vessels. After receiving his certificates he sailed the ‘seven seas’ in every position (from deckhand tocaptain) and on all types of ships (from tugboats to three-masted barques).

In 2007 he became one of the founders of Fairtransport and he still is one of the major shareholders.

In addition he holds a Dutch Ship-brokers certificate (Nederlandse Zeebevrachters Sociëteit) which qualifies him in maritime economics.
