When requested to develop a shipyard concept or provide consultancy services, our first step is always a discussion with the client. That way, your ambitions and goals form the basis of our cooperation.
Our services can match your requirements whatever they may be – we cover everything from the provision of advice right through to extensive research programmes. An initial investigation will ensure that all your circumstances are taken into consideration so that we can provide a solution tailored exactly to your needs – and your budget.
This will include a site visit and, if required, we will undertake a survey that will ascertain all technical, economic and other conditions that will influence the design choices. Following the conceptual design phase, soil analysis as well as bathymetrical and topographical surveys will be undertaken to facilitate the collection of data required to create a basic design.
We can supply a range of conceptual images and animations so that you are able to clearly visualise the end result. With the years of experience Damen has in operating newbuild and repair facilities all over the world, we are able to deliver to our customers sustainable and reliable solutions that will improve the competitiveness of their yards.
Our approach also aims to increase local employment opportunities wherever we operate in the world. Therefore, we provide the necessary training – either at a Damen location or the client’s yard – to enable their local workforce to carry out the realisation of our solutions.
