3D scanning & Engineering

3D scanning expertise

At Damen, 3D scanning is a very important part of our business. It enables our repair yards to perform retrofits as efficiently as possible and additionally, our newbuilt vessels can be checked with the drawings for any deviations.

Damen is known worldwide and present in more than 40 countries around the globe. It is the ideal partner for a 3D scanning job where speed, quality and costs are all taken into account.


  • Retrofitting Ballast Water Treatment Systems / Filtree / Scrubber systems / Exhaust Treatment Systems

  • Reverse Engineering - 3D visualisation during inspection

  • Ideal for visualising and quantifying damage to ships

  • Design changes (to gain insight into cavitation)


After a 3D scan you can either perform the engineering yourself or let Damen do it for you. With our years of experience, we are flexible and able to work in every programme and for any vessel. For more information, please contact us to discuss your requirements.


Retrofit engineering can encompass a wide range of activities, including structural analysis, mechanical and electrical system upgrades, insulation improvements and seismic strengthening. It may also involve the integration of new technologies such as smart building systems, CO2-reducing solutions, fuel saving devices, energy efficient lighting and renewable energy sources such as solar panels.

We use the latest technologies and tools such as computer-aided design (CAD) and Building Information Modelling (BIM) to create detailed plans and simulations of retrofit projects. This allows us to minimise disruptions and downtime during the construction phase and ensures that the final product meets or exceeds industry standards and regulations.
