Standardisation

Pioneering standardised shipbuilding

In 1969, our Chairman Kommer Damen pioneered standardised shipbuilding. His idea was to give customers a wide range of benefits such as being able to order vessels based on proven technology directly from stock, resulting in exceptionally fast delivery times.

Continual product development

Focusing on series building meant that the vessels shared a lot of commonality (equipment and spare parts) and that they are optimised through continual product development. Ultimately, Kommer Damen’s vision allowed him to offer sharply priced, top quality vessels and swift delivery times.


Future-proof, sustainable vessels

Today, the philosophy of series production is more relevant than ever before. As our industry looks towards increasing sustainability and digital connectivity, standardisation provides an efficient vehicle to make this transition. Therefore, Damen is certainly prepared for the future.


Oceans of possibilities

At Damen, we believe that oceans, seas, lakes and rivers offer humanity a growing range of possibilities in the areas of trade, food, energy and recreation.
