Smaller propellers and lower engine capacity required of Van der Velden Flex Tunnel

Inland shipping

Damen Marine Components is leading in supplying nozzles and rudder- and steering systems. By once again gaining a market share of 70% in 2018, DMC is, and aims to remain, market leader in the inland Rhine-related new-build shipping industry.

Every ship is unique in regards to propulsion and manoeuvring systems in combination with sailing profile. That is why we think each vessel, whether it is new-built or refit, deserves a customized and high quality solution for her manoeuvring system. We offer complete systems and packages including nozzles, winches, and Van der Velden® rudder-, steering- and control systems and spoilers.
