Every ship that we deliver undergoes an intense period of Commissioning & Trials – whether it’s a new build or an overhaul.
Damen provides all the specialists you need – Field Service Engineers, captains and classification officials. With the right experts on hand, we prepare your vessel for operations.
Commissioning is performed by a Damen Field Service Engineer (together with a supplier’s engineer if required). All shipboard equipment is rigorously tested – resulting in improved product quality and increased vessel uptime.
We conduct the following tests during sea trials to measure a vessel’s general seaworthiness and performance:
- Speed & endurance
- Sea-keeping & manoeuvrability
- Crash stop
- Total blackout
- Bilge/ballast/internal FiFi system
- External FiFi system (if applicable)
- Bollard pull (if applicable)
Once complete, the vessel is certified and accepted by the Classification Society (when required) and the owner.
