Seven different research projects will be covered, touching on subjects such as energy efficiency, design optimisation and sustainable ships.
This second article will cover two separate research programmes relating to sustainable and energy efficient ships.
This final chapter looks at the most recent (still ongoing) research programmes involving sustainable mining, and ‘value-added’ ships.
Damen's range of ballast water treatment options available including the world’s first mobile ballast water discharge technology for ports – the InvaSave.
“We will always be aiming for the perfect fender system for the Fast Crew Supplier (FCS) 2610”. By working together with customers and fender manufacturers, Damen is making progressive steps in fender development.
Composites are fibre reinforced polymers, with this material you can build a boat that is stronger and lighter than its aluminium counterpart, composite materials do not corrode.
Remote monitoring of critical assets is these days a part of everyday life, and the technology involved continues to evolve in its capabilities and sophistication. Praxis Automation Technology using.
A new era is dawning in the shipbuilding industry, one where traditional construction materials are being replaced with composites. These modern materials yield numerous advantages.
Marine access is a rapidly evolving sector of the offshore industry, and Damen continues to consult widely as offshore operators refine their requirements and objectives.
The story about the Damen R&D department and the bow fender of the Fast Crew Supplier 2610 is a story about a search for perfection.
Damen is now two years into a three-year project investigating Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tools and the contribution they can make to accelerating the ship design process, while at the same time cutting the associated costs and improving the quality of products in the group’s portfolio.
The project belongs to the wider corporate programme Damen Cooperative Research (DCR).
As the maritime world becomes more and more high-tech, collaborating with the entire ecosystem is crucial to remain competitive. Solco Reijnders and Marjolein Boer on innovation, 3D-printed propeller, Collaboration, Damen Digital, Hybrid vessel.
The Damen Shipyards Group has a long tradition of innovation. The standardised shipbuilding concept for which we are so renowned is just one example of this. The Sea Axe Hull that defines the appearance of so many Damen vessel is one such innovation – and one which makes sailing safer and more comfortable.
