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.
Take charge of tomorrow
Times are changing. Calls for sustainable shipping solutions are louder than ever. We aim to answer those calls, playing our part towards enabling maritime sustainability – so you can play yours. That is why we have developed our Electric tugs.
Our Electric tugs build on the foundation of Damen’s Next Generation Tugs and are designed to make zero emissions operations possible. Requiring just two hours of charging time, these tugs combine years of Damen heritage with cutting-edge innovation. A tug for the next generation is the result.
