Departmental Information
The Damen Shipyards Global Engineering Network is comprised of many Engineering Partners who work closely together in order to finish the complete design of each ship. This process is managed by the engineering department in Gorinchem. The work is carried out within four product groups: Tugs, High Speed Craft/Ferries, Offshore & Transport, and Damen Technical Cooperation. Each group is directed by an Engineering Manager and consists of a number of project teams. Each team includes both shipbuilding and mechanical engineers – directed by the Project Manager – who work on one or more projects at a time.

The Engineering Department is responsible for transforming the initial design into a complete and practicable engineering package. Engineering focuses on the development of both existing Damen ship types and new designs. The Engineering Department is also involved during the production phase of each ship and provides support as necessary.
