According to Mr. Steef Staal; Managing Director of Damen Marine Components this initiative from Rensen is experienced very positively and the “Sophia Kinderziekenhuis Rotterdam” (Sophia Hospital for Children) is a very good choice. He hopes to continue the co-operation for a long time so another cheque can be presented within a few years when the next milestone will be reached. Mr. Driessen from Rensen is also confident the next cheque can be handed over in short time.
Ever since the eighties of the last century there has been a close corporation between Rensen Shipbuilding and Damen Marine Components (Van de Giessen Nozzles at that time). The first propeller nozzle was delivered in the Netherlands. Mr. George Rensen and Mr. Leen Hoegee, former Managing Director of Van de Giessen, undersigned this first agreement. After this first propeller nozzle, many followed, from Damen Marine Components production locations in Poland, later on Romania and even from DMC-Suzhou in China; the production location co-established thanks to orders from Rensen. The propeller nozzles were (and are) delivered to shipyards worldwide.
