MDEM and Damen - from supplier to integral part of Damen
In 2006 MDEM signed its first contract with Damen Shipyards Group for a Fast Ferry 8521, proving its technical competency and actively showing a willingness to adopt new design approaches. We participated in other projects for High Speed Crafts, Tugs & Workboats, Public Transport, Offshore and other departments. We also supported Damen yards with their specific requirements. As the quality of both engineering and cooperation continued to improve, MDEM joined Damen in 2010.
“I think the idea was good and still is good because you have high skilled people coming from the Universities in Ukraine, hard-working people and much lower cost than we have to pay in Western Europe for the same capacities and the same creativity.” – Kommer Damen.
