SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability is growing in relevance across all industries and shipbuilding is no exception. Regulations are becoming increasingly stringent as governments and industry bodies seek to bring the maritime world into alignment with environmental targets.

Damen is committed to ensuring continuous improvement of its products and production methods, with the objective of reducing our environmental impact. Included in our approach is a focus on design optimisation, a continual drive towards ever-more environmentally relevant production methods and bringing environmental awareness to our employees in relation to everyday activities.

On the road to the perfect fender

On the road to the perfect fender

“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.

Composite vessels

Composite vessels

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.

Damen is a frontrunner in remote access and monitoring developments with remote applications one of the major areas of focus of a group-wide Research & Development programme.

New remote services deliver operational efficiencies

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.

R&D – the perfect fender

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.

CFD – Virtual Towing Tank

CFD – Virtual Towing Tank

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).

The maritime world of tomorrow

The maritime world of tomorrow

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.

Innovation Special

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.
