Over the years, Damen has delivered a number of customised frigates to the Royal Netherlands Navy. Covering all mission needs, Damen Defence and Security solutions are developed and tailored in partnership with our customers, and with a strong focus on real operational requirements.
Frigates in active service
Twenty-two of the combatants built by Damen Naval are still in service with navies around the world. These include the Van Speijk-class general-purpose frigates (Indonesia), the Kortenaer-class standard frigates (Greece), the Karel Doorman-class multipurpose frigates (the Netherlands, Belgium, Chile and Portugal) and the De Zeven Provinciën-class Air Defence and Command (LCF) frigates (the Netherlands).
