About Us

Damen Marine Components (DMC) designs and manufactures a range of premium systems that are vital for the propulsion, manoeuvring and performance of vessels engaged in all types of maritime activity. These include short sea, deep sea, offshore, ocean-going, inland waterways and naval vessels, and superyachts. Our primary products are nozzles, winches, controls and steering and rudder systems. The last two categories are sold under the Van der Velden trademark. As well as supplying Damen’s global network of shipyards, we work closely with third-party ship building and repair yards and distributors of maritime equipment around the world.

With over 150 years of experience, DMC has established a reputation for producing products that are advanced, high-quality and reliable, based on its in-house engineering capabilities and continuous feedback from customers, third-party naval architects and maritime research institutes. While offering a comprehensive range of standard solutions within each product class, we also work with our clients to provide customised and semi-customised solutions to meet specific requirements. The high-profile DMC engineering team with its German, Dutch and Romanian naval architects is focused on providing optimal manoeuvrability designs for every type of vessel, compliant with any class society.

ISO 9001-2015 and ISO 14001-2015 certification for all in-house production facilities in the Netherlands, Poland and China guarantees consistent quality. Our commitment to R&D and continuous improvement in both design and production processes ensures that all our output combines proven systems with the latest technological advances.

In addition to a global sales network ready to work with customers to help them find the optimal solutions for their vessels, we also offer a 24/7 worldwide support network to ensure that our products deliver maximum performance and minimal downtime.
