For the 29th NIDV Symposium, Damen has teamed up with Saab Kockums with a shared exhibition stand. This is a logical extension of the partnership the two companies have formed for the replacement project of the Walrus-class submarines of the Royal Netherlands Navy.
Come and meet us to find out more about this truly international cooperation featuring centuries of naval engineering and heritage.

Multi-purpose frigates, or M-frigates, can counter serious naval threats such as other frigates, aircrafts, missiles and submarines. These powerful warships with adequate weapons and sophisticated sensors are also very effective during missions with a lower threat level as well as against so called asymmetric opponents such as terrorists, pirates or illicit traffickers.
The Walrus-class submarines are well dimensioned for a long endurance, but quite small by comparison to e.g. nuclear submarines; this also makes them suitable for operations in coastal, shallow waters. They are internationally considered one of the best in its class.
Mine counter measures (MCM) vessels locate and disarm explosives under water. They also patrol territorial waters, support the national Coast Guard and law enforcement agencies, and search for shipwrecks or lost cargo. MCM Vessels keep our busy sea lanes and harbour entrances safe; a vital condition for the Netherlands’ maritime economy.
Damen Shipyards Group’s Defence and Security portfolio is perfectly suited to the maritime security challenges of today and tomorrow. From fast interceptors and modular auxiliary vessels to the most sophisticated combatants, and from highly efficient coast guard vessels to state-of-the-art air defence frigates and strategic joint support ships, it includes virtually every type of vessel that a modern navy demands. From 7 metres all the way up to 200+ metres.
