Damen fully elaborates slipways in multiple configurations and in all possible associated local situations. Our longitudinal or transversal directed slipways are deliberately designed to dry-dock vessels or move new build ships into the water.
A Damen Shiplift is an optional lifting facility to dry-dock the vessels acquired to your yard. From thereon ships can be transported to other places or even be serviced right at the platform.
The Shiplift is a remarkably efficient solution for yards with the opportunity to berth and service multiple vessels. Total lead-time to dock is relatively low and occupancy rate can be extended to a maximum amount of vessels to make your yard more valuable.
Damen designs fingerpiers with travelifts (or syncrolift) as a system for lifting boats and ships out of the water for maintenance work or repair. The vessel is maneuvered over a submerged cradle, which is then lifted by a set of synchronized hoists or winches.
Damen Civil designs, engineers and provides technical assistance during the establishment of graving docks. A graving dock is basically used for surveys, ship-repair and conversion but can also be used for assembling new build hulls (partly prefabricated) of (large) ships.
The Damen transfer area makes it possible to transfer a vessel in perpendicular direction of the production and slipway lines. With this movement a vessel can be transferred from one production line to the other or to the slipway.
The Damen fixed linkspans consist of bridge sections supported on one side at the quay and on the other side supported by a suspension frame. This suspension frame is normally founded on piles, though other options are possible.
The Damen floating linkspan consists of a (modular) pontoon and a bridge section on one side supported on the fixed quay and on the other side attached to the pontoon. Both supports are designed as hinges which allow rotations.
The Damen catwalk is an on steel or concrete piles supported jetty and can be used as an entrance way to get on - and reach specific places of - the vessels or as mooring place for the long term. Outfitting work can be performed when a vessel is moored at the catwalk.
A jetty is a structure that projects from the land out into the water, a walkway to access the vessels. Damen designs, engineers and executes projects with jetties on steel or concrete piles, with either steel, concrete or wooden structures.
Damen Civil designs and delivers production sheds to facilitate our clients own new building and repair facility. We elaborate the ultimate accommodation for each vessel to be built in the most efficient way.
Damen's Sunrain awning shed offers excellent protections against heat, wind, sun/light and rain during maintenance, service and constructional works.
Damen designs, engineers and delivers repair facilities to support any yard related repair feature, like slipways, floating dry-docks, travelifts, etc. We elaborate the ultimate accommodation for each repair facility in the most efficient and optimized way.
To facilitate the (in- and external) personnel training for ship new build, repair and conversion skills, Damen takes care of the design up to the eventual commissioning of the client's own training centre.
Every shipyard which comprises the new building, repair or conversion of vessels needs workshops. Damen has all the experience in-house and is your designated partner to advise and provide an elaboration of the most deliberated design, cost effective and efficient for your yard.
Damen Civil sells, delivers and uses this product during project execution. These modular and linkable units can be placed in (almost) every configuration requested and can even be placed on top of each other to create multiple level units incl. stairs. The mobile units can be deployed as workspace, office and lodging.
A well equipped quay wall will provide easy mooring access of ships to the shore for loading, unloading, maintenance, fit outs and/or along quay repairs. Our interference increases the efficiency, reduces down time and maximize profit for ship owners, ship builders and shipyard owners as well as port authorities.
Damen Civil is the specialist in applying fender system on quay walls. Damen consults, designs, produces and commissions engineered solutions for a vast range of marine and port construction applications.
Damen Civil ensures that every bollard anchor that we supply is right for the job. Our design team will collaborate closely with you to match your project’s special requirements. Anchor systems and mounting instructions are unique to each bollard type.
A breakwater is basically designed to protect the shores and harbours from influences of swell. It absorbs the energy of waves that hit it and it provides vessels opportunities to berth in relatively calm waters.
