Damen is a truly international company. As well as building vessels at its own yards all over the world, Damen is able to support clients with vessel construction at a location of their choice via Damen Technical Cooperation (DTC).
DTC was established in 1977 to enable local yards to build Damen designs. There are several reasons for selecting DTC. Sometimes this relates to working in a remote location, often inland. Other times it can be down to political requirements, such as a need to guarantee local content. In either case, DTC is an excellent way to stimulate a local economy and boost employment opportunities and skills development.
DTC Customers can choose exactly what they need, whether it is only the vessel design under a Damen licence, a full material package or a combination of the design, materials, shipbuilding assistance, advice and training. Furthermore, DTC can renovate or construct the yard facilities for the newbuild vessel. This highly flexible option results in a valuable transfer of technology and enables owners to enjoy Damen quality, combined with the convenience of local production. Advantages of having DTC as your shipbuilding partner include:
Proven designs from an extensive product range
Design flexibility to meet specific demands
Approach completely geared towards client preferences
Logistics of components adapted to building yard needs
Building assistance at all levels of the shipyard’s organisation, from welding up to higher management
Yard development to facilitate shipbuilding projects with DTC
Attractive financing options
DTC makes it possible to be a Damen customer, wherever you are in the world.
