As Damen Mid Sized Vessels we deliver maritime projects for various markets like e.g. Defense and Security, Public Transport, Offshore and Dredging. Our projects are Engineered to Order (ETO), which means we are involved throughout the project from the commercial phase, building the PM strategy, until commissioning, delivery and warranty. This makes our work very challenging because the environment is complex and we have a lot of stakeholders. We work in close cooperation with various internal departments, (sub)contractors, teams on the shipyard and of course the client and her representatives.

We do this with an international team of active and passionate colleagues who are developing new and innovative technologies and ways to support customers. With these developments Damen Mid-Sized Vessels pushes towards a more sustainable maritime industry.
