Damen has been cooperating with Wilson Sons for the best part of three decades. Our first collaboration with the largest operator of maritime and port logistics in Brazil was supporting the local construction of buoy-laying vessels for the Brazilian Navy.

The success of the cooperation then led to Wilson Sons and Damen cooperating to construct  workboats for Wilson Sons itself. The relationship continued to evolve, and the partners later entered the offshore market constructing Damen platform supply, oil spill recovery and offshore support vessels.

To date, Damen and Wilson Sons have cooperated on 92 Damen designed vessels in Brazil.
