The outbreak of the Coronavirus has developed into a global pandemic. Damen Shipyards Group has responded to this in a number of ways – and in so doing has ensured that most of our production facilities are open for business. It is our aim now, as always, to place health and wellbeing as top priority. This goes not only for our own colleagues, but all those with whom they may come into contact.

The measures we have taken include requesting our personnel to work from home, wherever possible. Where this is not possible, for example, in the case of our production staff, we are arranging shifts and taking other steps to reduce contact to a minimum. At this time, we are also arranging repatriation of our personnel currently working outside their home countries.

Despite these vitally important and very necessary measures, Damen remains open for business. Fortunately, we are well-prepared for the challenge, having in place a robust IT network, able to ensure the connection of our colleagues and the continuity of much of our work off-location.

During these times we retain our focus on the projects we are currently working on for our clients, whilst simultaneously working hard to minimise the impact and spread of the virus.

In the meantime we wish you, your family and your company all the best in these challenging times. If you have any questions or you would like further information about this matter, please do not hesitate to contact us.
