Sustainable maritime solutionsDamen’s work on the electrification of the maritime industry falls under the so-called E3 umbrella. That is, environmentally friendly, efficient in operation and economically viable. The shipyards group is currently working on a number of projects for electric vessels.
Competing with highways, bridges and tunnels, river crossing ferries act as ‘niche players’, serving customers that don’t want to take a long detour. They connect areas where bridges are not an option. Strong, reliable and with a day in, day out service, these ferries play an important role in local communities and people’s lives. Damen builds a wide range of Road Ferries, from sophisticated passenger and car ferries to robust and simple workhorses for customers in all corners of the globe.
True workhorses that can be relied upon
Damen’s Road Ferries often serve routes that are considered the busiest in the world. Our extensive range of ferries are renowned for their reliability, low maintenance and efficiency. With an increasing focus on moving towards a more sustainable planet and reducing emissions as much as possible, the hybrid and all-electric ferry now gives our customers another option for serving their community.
