Four packages, each comprised of steering gear and rudders, five winches and two towing pin systems, will be supplied to US shipbuilder C&C Marine & Repair for four new-build Multi Cats 3013 workboats. The first two vessels will be delivered to Callan Marine Ltd. and the second two vessels will be built "on spec" by C&C Marine & Repair for sale or lease to the US market. Each of the 30-metre, multi-purpose Multi Cats will be fitted with DMC Piston-type steering gear, two tugger winches, an anchor winch, a towing winch, an anchor handling winch and two towing pin systems rated 50 and 80 tonnes respectively. All of these are designed and manufactured at DMC’s production facilities in the Netherlands, Poland and China. DMC will also be supplying a triple rudder system for each vessel, produced in-house to a third-party design. All DMC equipment is designed and built on the three principles of durability, reliability and low maintenance over the long term and in all conditions. C&C Marine and Repair was established in 1997 and is located in Belle Chasse, LA, on 80 acres along the Intracoastal Waterway. The company designs and builds dredges, dredge support vessels, towboats, barges and offshore supply vessels, along with a variety of other marine vessels. The company’s facilities are designed to perform all new construction inside enclosed workshops, with multiple projects underway at the same time.Callan Marine, LTD. is a Texas-based, privately-owned dredging and marine construction business founded in 2009. It performs dredging projects for both private and public clients by providing services to restore berthing depths for ship docks, navigation channels and otherwise facilitating transportation in the nation’s waterways. The primary purpose of the Multi Cats will be to support Callan Marine’s dredging fleet; handling anchors and towing barges wherever they may be operating. The DMC equipment is designed to cope in a wide range of conditions from the subtropical climate of the Gulf of Mexico to the freezing winters on the Great Lakes. All DMC’s winches are designed using proven engineering principles and built to the highest standards. Its towing winches are unique with gearboxes that automatically adjust to the required pulling force. This enables them to always run at the most efficient speed. This technology is also used for the anchor-handling winches to maximize safety in the often hazardous conditions in which they operate. All DMC products can be customized to meet the requirements of each client. Tony Cibilich, owner of C&C Marine, says: “We have full confidence that Damen Marine Components’ equipment will deliver years of trouble-free service to our client Callan Marine. DMC’s products can be found all over the world and it has a strong reputation in the international market. We look forward to doing business with them again in the future.”Arie van den Adel, Chief Operating Officer of…

This is when the Flex Tunnel comes in. The Flex Tunnel is a retractable tunnel system, constructed in the aft of a vessel hull. The airtight seal of the tunnel onto the nozzle creates vacuum, ensuring sufficient water flow to the propeller. Hereby the effective operation of the propeller remains guaranteed, even in shallow waters with minimal cargo. But when a ship is loaded and navigating in deep waters, the Flex Tunnel can simply be retracted and embedded into the vessel hull. In this situation, the water flows into the propeller unobstructed. As opposed to a fixed tunnel, the flexible retraction of this system significantly reduces the overall resistance of a vessel. It allows the captain to choose when and where to set the tunnel into or out of operation. Recent news

On completion at the company’s Rendsburg facility the yacht will be highly distinctive with a shark-like profile including a fin at the top of the superstructure and a matt black paint finish on the exterior of the hull. The complete steering system order consists of two Atlantic rudders and two of DMC’s Commander Piston-type steering gear systems together with hydraulic units and bridge control panels. This is an ideal combination for a high-performance motor yacht like Black Shark. Commander steering gear is a high quality and versatile system that, given that it is available in a range of different rudder stock connections, can be installed in a configuration that best matches the space available. Meanwhile, DMC’s Atlantic rudder system is a full spade design with an optimised profile, delivering excellent manoeuvrability with minimum resistance, ideal for medium to high-speed vessels and contributing to the IMO Tier III compliant yacht’s sustainability goals. Steffen Pel, Operations Manager at Damen Marine Components, says: “This is an excellent combination for superyacht owners looking for low maintenance steering systems that offer excellent manoeuvrability as well as reliability. The systems have proven themselves on a wide range of vessel types, all over the world.” Nobiskrug Yachts GmbH has been building vessels for over a century and in recent years has been responsible for delivering some of the most distinctive and innovative superyachts afloat today. Black Shark is scheduled to be delivered to her owner in 2023. Recent news

The client is Den Breejen Shipyard from Hardinxveld-Giessendam. This yard will build the pusher-barge combinations on behalf of Rhenus PartnerShip GmbH & Co. KG in Duisburg. This is a rare collaboration with these being the first complete inland vessels to be built in the Netherlands in a long time. The Flex Tunnels will be installed in the two newly built pusher-barge combinations. The highly regarded retractable tunnel system significantly increases the efficiency and versatility of a ship. DMC is also supplying complete six-rudder systems.Safer and more economical The bows of the barges will be fitted with Rotor Manoeuvring Systems (RMS). These systems, which have been supplied by Damen Marine Components since the late 1980s, guarantee the ship’s course stability, even in shallow waters and in strong crosswinds. Inland shipping entrepreneurs’ interest in RMS has grown strongly in recent years, with more ships being designed for navigation at low water levels. RMS not only makes the vessels safer, it also provides significant savings in fuel consumption.Full package Den Breejen Shipyard has commissioned DMC to design, manufacture and install a complete package for two pusher-barge combinations. In addition to the Flex Tunnels and RMS with all associated hydraulics and controls, DMC is also supplying two Optima nozzles, two high-efficiency propellers, two drive systems to simultaneously synchronise six rudders (three for each rudder), plus a type SP2700 control system. This is not the first time that DMC has equipped ships with Flex Tunnels for Rhenus. The very first ship with Flex Tunnels, the Rhenus Duisburg, was put into operation ten years ago and is still in operation without any problems. For Den Breejen Shipyard, however, this order is their first project with Rhenus. Commercial Manager Ben de Rooy, says: “We’re an all-round shipyard, but we have never built a ship like this for Rhenus PartnerShip before, so we’re very happy with this collaboration.” Short distance Leo van Zon, Area Sales Manager at Damen Marine Components, comments: “We’re very happy with the confidence that both Den Breejen and Rhenus have placed in us. This is a special order for us. The entire build will take place at a Dutch shipyard - a conscious choice by Rhenus. The major advantages of this are not only the short travel distances and communication lines, but also the perfect quality we can guarantee together.”Innovations for sustainability Herbert Berger, director of Rhenus PartnerShip, adds: “We no longer want to take small steps in the fields of sustainability and safety, but instead make ground-breaking progress. That’s why we want to make use of all the innovations that are available for our new ships. DMC’s Flex Tunnel and RMS are important systems to achieve efficient ship operations.” The hull design was developed by maritime research centre DST (Development Centre…

Semi spade rudders with innovative asymmetric leading edge will be installed on five new Pure Car and Truck Carrier (PCTC) vessels for Eastern Pacific Shipping from Singapore. The vessels are to be built by CSC Jinling Shipyard in China. The customised rudder will contribute to saving fuel during passages thanks to innovative design. The five 72,000 gross ton vessels feature 12 cargo decks on which they can carry 7000 vehicles. The carriers of nearly 200 meter long, 38-meter beam and 8.6-meter design draft are laid out for a design speed of 19.5 knots. These car carriers will be propelled by dual fuel diesel-LNG engines by a single propeller. Running on LNG, these vessels will be able to sail with considerable reduction of emissions as compared to conventionally powered ships. For each of the five identical carriers, Damen Marine Components (DMC) will deliver one rudder, that will allow for even more fuel savings thanks to optimised design. The customised rudder will provide 1450 kilonewton meter of torque, the weight is 46 tonnes, excluding the horn. Asymmetric Rudder Technology (ART) is based on advanced hydrodynamics. The asymmetric leading edge diverts the rotational effects of the propeller wake to enhance the flow along the rudder. This reduces drag and thus saves fuel. ART is often applied to the leading edge of the rudder blade, yet for the five PCTC’s also the horn of the rudder is asymmetric. This further optimisation of rudder design, enhancing fuel economy, is specially engineered for these vessels by the DMC design team. Bogdan Mocanu, Area Sales Manager at Damen Marine Components says: “We are very glad to have the opportunity of using our expert knowledge in designing the rudders for top performance, fully complying with the ship’s operational profile.” The five PCTC’s will be built at the China Merchant Jinling Shipyard under DNV class notation. DMC will deliver the rudders for the five consecutive carriers in the course of 2023 and 2024, in time for scheduled ship delivery from the yard. Recent news

Damen Marine Components (DMC) will provide one Atlantic Rudder for each vessel. These rudders are known to cause minimal drag thanks to their slim design. For these container vessels, Asymmetric Rudder Technology (ART) will be applied in the design of the leading edge of the rudder. A rudder bulb in the wake of the propeller axis, further improves the hydrodynamic properties of the rudder configuration. Greek ship owner company Danaos Shipping ordered the two 7,100 TEU feeders at Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Co, the yard will deliver these vessels during the second and third quarter of 2024. The vessels will be methanol fuel ready and will comply to IMO Tier III emission standards and Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) Phase III. Length between perpendiculars of the two identical vessels is 255 meters, 42.8 meters breadth, 12 meters design load draught and a design speed of 20 knots. DMC will provide the tailor designed rudder for each one of the vessels, measuring 61 square meter and generating 3300 Kilonewton meter of torque. As the propeller in forward thrust has a fixed rotation direction, the asymmetric leading edge will improve the water flow by directing the turbulent water along the rudder blade more efficiently. Even more hydrodynamic optimisation is achieved by the bulb. In the wake of the propeller axis, turbulent water can circle and cause vibrations in hull and rudder. The rudder bulb is positioned right behind the centre of the propeller and eliminates this turbulence to create a better flow along the rudder blade. A stable and directional water flow generates more thrust than turbulent water. The advanced rudder technology adds to the sustainable ambition of the shipowner and charterer to operate vessels that cause minimal emissions. The choice for a methanol ready design expresses this ambition. Reducing drag, exemplified by the application of ART Atlantic Rudders with Bulb allow further fuel and emission savings. “These vessels are at the forefront of new technology,” says Danaos CEO Dr John Coustas. “With this order Danaos will continue to maximise efficiency with a focus on creating value for our shareholders.” The two new container feeders add to the fleet of 71 container vessels, ranging from 2,200 up to 13,100 TEU (Twenty Foot Equivalent Unit – one standard container). “We are proud to have been selected by Danaos as partner for reaching their targets of improved operational efficiency and reducing the environmental footprint of their fleet” says Wim Knoester, Commercial Director of Damen Marine Components.

Total overhaul of used DMC-built azimuth rudder propeller nozzles is a growing business with a new annual record of 25 orders set by late September 2013 already. Nearly all of them involved assignment from Schottel GmbH to whom they had originally once been delivered brand-new. The nozzles are collected and returned in an almost weekly truck service between the Schottel main plants in Spay (on the Rhine) or Wismar, Germany and DMC Gdansk, Poland (DMCG).Eight steps “Refurbishing a basically worn-out nozzle is a minimum eight-stage operation”, Dik Verhoef added. “If repair is required too, a single nozzle may take a few weeks.” Judging from the astonishing photos enclosed, this is no surprise. DMC Suzhou is part of Damen Shipyards Group, which has a strong presence in China. The factory in Suzhou builds propeller nozzles and other propulsion parts for both worldwide clients and for Damen's shipbuilding facilities in China. The work includes: - Shotblasting - Damage inspection - Measuring (and adjustment) of mounting plate alignment - Non destructive testing of major connection points - Search for leaks - Repair - Replacing anodes - Final shotblasting and 3-layer painting. The nozzle service has gradually been growing over the years, leading up to the new whole-year record of 25 makeovers set in September already. Verhoef: “If a rudder propeller unit is repaired on location abroad, we’ll pick-up and redeliver the nozzle there.” Recent news

The vessels will be 138-metres in length and have a hopper capacity of 10,500 m³. They will represent the very latest in sustainable, energy-efficient dredging and are due for delivery in 2021. The third will be handed over the following year. Each vessel will have two Commander™ piston-type steering systems and two Master Rudders with fish-tail design bulb. The Commander™ piston-type guarantees reliability and high quality thanks to its in-house cylinder design and is available in a range of options with regard to rudder stock connections, rudder angles and cylinders. This makes the installation process efficient and reduces the amount of space required.The Master Rudder offers high manoeuvrability and has a specifically designed, high performance, fish tail profile that can be optimised to suit a wide range of vessels. In addition, the absence of movable parts makes it ideal for vessels operating in shallow waters. The rudders for Van Oord’s TSHDs will have an area of approximately 14 m², be class approved by Bureau Veritas for speeds of up to 15 knots and generate a torque of 270 kNm. With rudder angles of up to 65º, Master Rudders offer high lift and their fish tail design can be optimised to the purpose of the vessel. Each rudder will be executed with rudder bulb. This improves the propeller wake field, thereby saving energy and reducing fuel consumption, and also increases thrust at higher loads. The robust design and manufacturing ensures uninterrupted operation despite the harsh environment where it operates. The rudder profile has been optimised during model tests for best manoeuvring performance at low speed and shallow water- says Mr. Bogdan Mocanu Area Sales Manager of DMC. Recent news

Official opening of new DMC headquarters The occasion also marked the introduction of Mark Visser as the company’s new managing director as current managing director Steef Staal prepares for his retirement after 15 years at DMC and a total of 46 years working within the Damen Shipyards Group. The new DMC headquarters were opened by Beer Damen, son of Damen Shipyards Group chairman Kommer Damen, with more than 350 invited guests including clients, suppliers, business relations and colleagues attending. Growth at DMC This opening speech was the opportune moment to respectfully thank DMC’s outgoing managing director Steef Staal, who will retire in February 2020. After 46 years working for Damen, it is an understatement to say that Mr Staal has contributed a great deal to the success of the Damen Shipyards Group over the years. Talking at the event, he said: “Wherever I go, I always head for the harbour to see if I can see any Damen vessels. I can spot them a mile off – and that’s a skill I’ll keep with me forever.” With the merger with Van der Velden Marine Systems in 2018, the acquisition of WK Hydraulics earlier this year and the establishment of Damen Winch Technology , DMC has undergone substantial expansion in recent years. The new headquarters serve as the workplace for a team of 100 personnel, and consist of new offices in addition to new production facilities. In-house expertise Complementing DMC’s production facilities in Poland and China, the new premises at Hardinxveld-Giessendam are equipped to carry out steel work and hydraulic assemblies. It also has a professional paint shop and a large warehouse for storage of all spares. The day also saw the official introduction of Mark Visser, who began his tenure as DMC’s new managing director on 1 October, after moving from Damen’s High Speed Craft product group. “DMC is not only a component supplier – we are a high-tech company with high-quality products and systems. Look at the developments we have made with the automation of steering systems, remote monitoring, and the first autonomous sailing projects. We have all this expertise in-house,” he said, clearly enthusiastic about the prospect of taking the helm at DMC. “And with modern vessels becoming more and more complex, components are becoming more important than the hull in which they are installed.”On the photo above (from left to right): Steef Staal and Mark Visser at Damen Marine Components Recent news

These had to be fabricated to exceptionally high standards to cope with the ice that the vessel will encounter in the Southern Ocean. DMC is responsible for the detail engineering and manufacturing of the rudder and steering gear system. The rudders in particular are unique. They have been designed and engineered by project-lead Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding as free-hanging, full-spade rudders. These deliver optimum hydrodynamic properties but until now were unheard-of for an icebreaking vessel of this class, given the forces involved. Other innovative features include the integrated mechanical rudder stoppers, which are located between the rudder blade and (hull) skeg structure rather than on the outside hull due to the latter’s radical design.Instalment of hydraulic nut by Damen Shipyards Galati. To deliver all the necessary steering system components from the bridge to the rudder, including hydraulics, control and power systems, while meeting the unprecedent performance requirements, DMC pooled its expertise in this field with that of MacGregor Hatlapa (MacGregor). Working to DMC’s specifications, MacGregor manufactured and supplied the steering gear assemblies and the hydraulic systems that power them based on a highly-customized version of its proven Poseidon series. DMC delivered the rudder system, neck and carrier bearing systems steering gear foundations, electrical system, and the primary steering control system. With so many of the systems breaking the boundaries of normal ice breaker design and build, DMC worked closely with Lloyds Register’s polar division throughout the process to ensure that the required standards were established and achieved. The results of this cooperation include rudders that are by far the heaviest per square metre that DMC has ever built and rudder stocks with a diameter of over a 1000 mm. This together with the materials used made them very challenging to manufacture and install. These premium specification components are vital to the safe and reliable operation of the vessel. Its combination of ice breaker classification and high polar class notation creates the need to enhance its structural integrity such that, while the maximum design speed of the vessel is actually around 16 knots, most of the components have had to be designed to cope with theoretical speeds in excess of 31 knots. This joint-venture approach was chosen due to DSNS requiring proven technology and a single supplier, yet the specifications were such that no standard products available from DMC and its leading competitors came close to being able to withstand the expected forces. While being only 160-metres in length, the stresses imposed on the hull and its components are equivalent to those found on a normal vessel of 300 metres or more. MacGregor, with an existing product that would deliver the necessary performance after some…

Van der Velden Marine Systems (VDVMS), in conjunction with Ships Machinery International, Inc. (SMI) is pleased to announce the launching of a new state-of-the-art Jones Act Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger (TSHD) with Barke® high-lift flap rudders for service in the U.S.A. The rudders will work in combination with a Royal IHC Dynamic Positioning and Dredge Tracking System on board the vessel, which is owned and operated by Weeks Marine. VDVMS has a long history with Royal IHC. Over decades the two companies have worked together, constantly improving the technology available for Royal IHC’s vessels. Dredgers have requirements for precise steering while manoeuvring at very slow speed as well as accurate and efficient course keeping when not in dredging mode. VDVMS provides the most effective rudder design for this type of vessel. This TSHD will have enhanced manoeuvrability and excellent course keeping stability. The efficiency provided by this technologically advanced rudder solution will result in significant savings over the life of the vessel.“The launching of our new vessel marks an important milestone for Weeks Marine,” Hans Blomberg, Technical Manager for Weeks said in a statement. “The independently operated Van der Velden Barke® rudders in combination with Royal IHC’s Dynamic Positioning and Dredge Tracking System, will allow the vessel to be highly maneuverable not only during the dredging cycle but also for station keeping while connected to the shore delivery system.” This modern TSHD, named Magdalen, is 108.5 meters breadth of 24.24 meters and a moulded depth of 8.31 meters. The dredger features efficient, clean-burning engines and state-of-the-art frequency drives to power the vessel’s pumps, jetting and other electrically driven systems. The Magdalen has twin GE 16V250 main engines producing 5,685hp each, and a GE 6L250 auxiliary engine producing 2,009hp. Two 3,400kW shaft generators and a 1,500 kW auxiliary generator make up the ship’s primary power generation plant. In addition, the vessel is also equipped with a Caterpillar C18 emergency/harbor generator that produces 425 kW. The Magdalen is outfitted with a 730 kW fixed pitch tunnel thruster unit. “This vessel will reward the owners with high operating efficiency over its lifetime thanks to the selection of the Barke® rudder,” said Arthur Dewey, Vice President of SMI. “A dredger that is able to maintain precision position during operations will be easier to operate and will be a highly productive asset for its owners. We congratulate Weeks Marine for their wise selection!” The Barke rudder in this vessel is the foundation of an exceptional manoeuvring system consisting of two independently…

DMC has grown from a very small shipyard established in Gorinchem in 1865, to become the largest nozzle builder in the world. Via a live satellite link, around a 1,000 customers, employees, suppliers and colleagues, at its three main locations in Hardinxveld (the Netherlands), Jiangyin (China) and Gdańsk (Poland), will toast this historic occasion simultaneously. Although DMC’s own roots were established in 1865 when Jan van de Giessen set up a business from a small wharf in the ‘Kalkhaven’, the history of shipbuilding in the area actually dates back to the 14th century. DMC itself was officially founded 10 years ago, when two Damen Group members were merged - Van de Giessen and Gdansk Engineering Works. GEW was actually the first company Damen Shipyards ever acquired outside of the Netherlands. Looking back over the years, DMC Managing Director, Steef Staal told the audience how, above all, he believes DMC’s success is because it ‘has become a partner to its clients, rather than just a supplier’. “We help our clients and work together with them.” Partner to customers Quality is paramount, he emphasises, both in terms of our products and in delivery times. “We have built up close relationships with our customers by delivering reliable quality.” He points out that DMC partners are mainly leading OEMs. Just in the last decade alone, DMC has nearly tripled its turnover to €36m and this has been possible due to Damen Shipyards’ willingness to invest in cutting-edge equipment and innovative production processes. DMC has three large spinning machines, which are able to manufacture nozzles up 7.5 m in diameter. “Perhaps there is another builder out there able to make these spectacular nozzles but I am not aware of it!” He adds that it is not just about the spinning machines alone but crucially, the novel manufacturing technique deployed, which means that nozzles are made with only a single weld on the inner side. As well as the vast range of top quality nozzles and rudders, DMC also manufactures shipbuilding constructions such as tailor-made stern sections for thrusters, crane foundations and crane arms. Winches added to portfolio And only recently, it added the production of winches to its portfolio. Rudders are already manufactured through sister company Van der Velden Marine Systems and winches too, have been in introduced through its new company ‘Damen Winch Technology’. Currently, Damen Shipyards is the main client for the towing winches for ASD Tugs. Following on from the celebrations surrounding the 150th anniversary, DMC is also set to celebrate again, as it opens a second major production site in China in Jiangyin on November 27. Damen has built this new production plant from scratch. At 11,000 sq m, the facility is nearly double its existing site at Suzhou. The facility will have its own spinning machine and state-of-the-art equipment including grinding…

To be able to generate high lifting forces, the ships are equipped with Master rudders and Barke® High-Lift flap rudders. The Arklow Artist is currently being outfitted at the Ferus Smit shipyard in Westerbroek, the Netherlands. This vessel is part of Arklow Shipping’s 8,500DWT series. The first five ships in this series, Arklow Abbey, Accord, Ace, Archer and Arrow, are now in service. This also applies to the 16,500DWT series, which consists of four ships: the Arklow Wave, Wind, Willow and Wood.Initially, both series were going to be equipped with NXA fishtail rudders. Arklow Shipping, with offices in Arklow, Ireland and Rotterdam, the Netherlands, asked its captains and superintendents for feedback, which revealed a strong need for the capability of crabbing; the ability of a ship to move sideways without moving forwards. “An understandable wish,” says Marnix de Bruijn, sales manager of Damen Marine Components. “Especially the ships from the 8,500DWT series need a lot of lateral movements, because they commute from port to port and have to manoeuvre a lot.” Damen Marine Components has adopted this wish. In consultation with the management boards of Arklow Shipping and Ferus Smit, it was decided to replace the NXA rudders from the original design. The 8,500DWT series has therefore been fitted with Barke® High-Lift flap rudders. With the progressive rotating flap, the Barke® rudder generates high lifting forces at large rudder angles and low drag at small rudder angles. This aids in sideways shifting.Because there was no time for this with the 16,500DWT series due to the delivery time of the Barke® rudders, the best alternative was sought for this series. These four ships are equipped with Master rudders. With rudder angles of up to 65°, this fishtail rudder provides high lift. The design can be optimised for many different types of ships. Arklow Shipping is very pleased with the conversion of the rudders and the behaviour of the ships, which are now used to great satisfaction. In addition to the rudders, the ten Arklow vessels are also equipped with the Commander™ Rotary Vane steering system, including hydraulic power unit (HPU) and the Damen Marine Components control system. The four 16,500DWT series ships are 145.5 metres long and 19.25 metres wide. The six ships from the 8,500DWT series have a length of 116.89 metres and a width of 14.99 metres. Bureau Veritas has classified all ten ships as Ice class 1A, one of the highest ice classes. Recent news

Official opening of new DMC headquarters The occasion also marked the introduction of Mark Visser as the company’s new managing director as current managing director Steef Staal prepares for his retirement after 15 years at DMC and a total of 46 years working within the Damen Shipyards Group. The new DMC headquarters were opened by Beer Damen, son of Damen Shipyards Group chairman Kommer Damen, with more than 350 invited guests including clients, suppliers, business relations and colleagues attending. Growth at DMC This opening speech was the opportune moment to respectfully thank DMC’s outgoing managing director Steef Staal, who will retire in February 2020. After 46 years working for Damen, it is an understatement to say that Mr Staal has contributed a great deal to the success of the Damen Shipyards Group over the years. Talking at the event, he said: “Wherever I go, I always head for the harbour to see if I can see any Damen vessels. I can spot them a mile off – and that’s a skill I’ll keep with me forever.” With the merger with Van der Velden Marine Systems in 2018, the acquisition of WK Hydraulics earlier this year and the establishment of Damen Winch Technology , DMC has undergone substantial expansion in recent years. The new headquarters serve as the workplace for a team of 100 personnel, and consist of new offices in addition to new production facilities. In-house expertise Complementing DMC’s production facilities in Poland and China, the new premises at Hardinxveld-Giessendam are equipped to carry out steel work and hydraulic assemblies. It also has a professional paint shop and a large warehouse for storage of all spares. The day also saw the official introduction of Mark Visser, who began his tenure as DMC’s new managing director on 1 October, after moving from Damen’s High Speed Craft product group. “DMC is not only a component supplier – we are a high-tech company with high-quality products and systems. Look at the developments we have made with the automation of steering systems, remote monitoring, and the first autonomous sailing projects. We have all this expertise in-house,” he said, clearly enthusiastic about the prospect of taking the helm at DMC. “And with modern vessels becoming more and more complex, components are becoming more important than the hull in which they are installed.”On the photo above (from left to right): Steef Staal and Mark Visser at Damen Marine Components Recent news

The project involved the retrofit of a new rudder that delivered performance improvements exceeding the expectations of the ship’s owner and captain. The vessel involved was the Coastal Standard, a 73-metre short-sea vessel built in 2015. Its owner is Coastal Transportation Inc., a family-owned company that has been transporting cargo along the western coast of Alaska for over thirty years. Last year, Damen Marine Components (DMC) received the order for a Barke® high lift flap rudder including bulb. Barke® rudders incorporate a sophisticated flap design with more than 100° flap angle that delivers unbeatable manoeuvrability and course-keeping. The enclosed linkage system of the Barke® rudder reduces noise levels, provides overload protection and eliminates the entry risk of floating objects, sand and ice. Maintenance requirements are minimal. Since their introduction in 1984, Damen Marine Components has delivered nearly 1,000 Barke® rudders to a wide range of vessels ranging from coasters, naval ships and ferries to tugs, fishing boats and superyachts. The rudder was fitted in the spring of 2019, the vessel completed her sea trials in June. Within a short period of sailing-time, the crew of Coastal Standard were noticing and appreciating a significant improvement in the ship’s performance as a result of the new Barke® rudder.John Fisker-Andersen, Port Engineer of Coastal Transportation, commented: “The captain gave us a very positive report regarding the manoeuvring characteristics. The Barke® rudder requires less input to keep the vessel on a straight course. Also, it is significantly quieter in the wheelhouse when running at full speed. Compared to the previous situation, the handling characteristics are impressive, and the quality of the equipment is really first class.” Leo van Zon, DMC area sales manager, added: “During course keeping this slim profile rudder ensures minimal resistance while the progressively operating flap delivers unbeatable performance when manoeuvring. After the sea trials conducted by Coastal Transportation I was informed by John that during the swing test, the crew was greatly impressed and had to hold tight on to the railings because of the great lift forces of the rudder. A great achievement from all involved. DMC is delighted that that the crew of the Coastal Standard are enjoying real benefits from the upgrade to her rudder and wishes them safe sailing over the years ahead.” Recent news

The contract is for the supply of two Timon rudders with ART™ and bulb, and two Commander™ rotary vane steering systems, for the RoPax ferry Color Hybrid which, when completed, will be the world’s largest Plug-in Hybrid vessel. Color Hybrid DMC Rudders and Brunvoll Integrated Costa Propulsion ICP The high lift Timon flap rudder is ideal for RoPax ferries and other medium and high-speed vessels that require excellent manoeuvring capability. With its Timon slide-bar system and high lift performance, it ensures smooth pressure distribution while avoiding pressure peaks and delivers low drag and saves on energy. It is also easy to maintain with water lubricated bearing and low cavitation erosion. As well as RoPax ferries, Timon rudders are ideal for tugs, both towing and offshore, tankers and vessels that spend an appreciable portion of their time leaving and entering port. Commander™ rotary vane steering gear is ideal for all commercial oceangoing vessels with its simple, robust and compact design. With only one movable part it ensures trouble-free, maintenance-free operation for more than 60,000 hours at a time, and each has a second-generation compact actuator for the smoothest possible rudder movements. Mounted inside closed housings, DMC’s advanced sealing technology prevents internal leakage and offers a greatly extended seal life.Designed by Fosen Yard AS for Color Line, Norway’s biggest shipping company and one of the biggest in European short sea shipping, Color Hybrid is nearing completion at the Ulstein Verft yard in Norway. She is due to begin operations soon on the Sandefjord, Norway/Strömstad, Sweden route. Measuring 160 metres in length and with a beam of 27.1 metres, the vessel has capacity for up to 2,000 passengers and 500 cars, at speeds of up to 17 knots. With a battery package of 4.7MW/h, the vessel will be able to sail up to 12 nautical miles solely on battery power, with shore power for charging available at Sandefjord. Classification is being undertaken by DNV GL. Damen Marine Components specialises in customised solutions covering every aspect of manoeuvring from rudders and streamline bodies to steering gear and propeller nozzles. Complete, optimised packages can be delivered using FEED (front end engineering design). This technique studies of all the relevant hydrodynamic aspects of interactions between a ship’s stern, its propeller(s) and the rudder(s). Mr Wim Knoester, Director Sales and Marketing at Damen Marine Components, commented: “Thanks to the good cooperation with our partner Brunvoll and due to their Integrated Costa Propulsion (Brunvoll ICP) we have been able to optimise the manoeuvring system of this outstanding ship, giving our customer the most efficient and environmental friendly performance.” Recent news

DMC has grown from a very small shipyard established in Gorinchem in 1865, to become the largest nozzle builder in the world. Via a live satellite link, around a 1,000 customers, employees, suppliers and colleagues, at its three main locations in Hardinxveld (the Netherlands), Jiangyin (China) and Gdańsk (Poland), will toast this historic occasion simultaneously. Although DMC’s own roots were established in 1865 when Jan van de Giessen set up a business from a small wharf in the ‘Kalkhaven’, the history of shipbuilding in the area actually dates back to the 14th century. DMC itself was officially founded 10 years ago, when two Damen Group members were merged - Van de Giessen and Gdansk Engineering Works. GEW was actually the first company Damen Shipyards ever acquired outside of the Netherlands. Looking back over the years, DMC Managing Director, Steef Staal told the audience how, above all, he believes DMC’s success is because it ‘has become a partner to its clients, rather than just a supplier’. “We help our clients and work together with them.” Partner to customers Quality is paramount, he emphasises, both in terms of our products and in delivery times. “We have built up close relationships with our customers by delivering reliable quality.” He points out that DMC partners are mainly leading OEMs. Just in the last decade alone, DMC has nearly tripled its turnover to €36m and this has been possible due to Damen Shipyards’ willingness to invest in cutting-edge equipment and innovative production processes. DMC has three large spinning machines, which are able to manufacture nozzles up 7.5 m in diameter. “Perhaps there is another builder out there able to make these spectacular nozzles but I am not aware of it!” He adds that it is not just about the spinning machines alone but crucially, the novel manufacturing technique deployed, which means that nozzles are made with only a single weld on the inner side. As well as the vast range of top quality nozzles and rudders, DMC also manufactures shipbuilding constructions such as tailor-made stern sections for thrusters, crane foundations and crane arms. Winches added to portfolio And only recently, it added the production of winches to its portfolio. Rudders are already manufactured through sister company Van der Velden Marine Systems and winches too, have been in introduced through its new company ‘Damen Winch Technology’. Currently, Damen Shipyards is the main client for the towing winches for ASD Tugs. Following on from the celebrations surrounding the 150th anniversary, DMC is also set to celebrate again, as it opens a second major production site in China in Jiangyin on November 27. Damen has built this new production plant from scratch. At 11,000 sq m, the facility is nearly double its existing site at Suzhou. The facility will have its own spinning machine and state-of-the-art equipment including grinding…

A rudder bulb is a streamlined bulb, which is fixed at the leading edge of the rudder. It improves the water flow in front of the rudder and fills the vacuum behind the centre of the propeller. In addition, the rudder bulb reduces propeller induced cavitation, which will result in an extended lifetime of the rudder by less cavitation damage in propeller hub area. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) calculations together with tank tests have proven direct fuel savings up to 1,5% when a bulb is applied to a rudder, depending on the ship type and its steering behaviour. This energy saving device is best suited to seagoing vessels with large propeller hub sizes and high thrust loads, such as bulk carriers, container ships, oil and chemical tankers, Roro vessels and cruise ships. A bulb can be installed in new-build and existing ships (retrofit). Recent news

To be able to generate high lifting forces, the ships are equipped with Master rudders and Barke® High-Lift flap rudders. The Arklow Artist is currently being outfitted at the Ferus Smit shipyard in Westerbroek, the Netherlands. This vessel is part of Arklow Shipping’s 8,500DWT series. The first five ships in this series, Arklow Abbey, Accord, Ace, Archer and Arrow, are now in service. This also applies to the 16,500DWT series, which consists of four ships: the Arklow Wave, Wind, Willow and Wood.Initially, both series were going to be equipped with NXA fishtail rudders. Arklow Shipping, with offices in Arklow, Ireland and Rotterdam, the Netherlands, asked its captains and superintendents for feedback, which revealed a strong need for the capability of crabbing; the ability of a ship to move sideways without moving forwards. “An understandable wish,” says Marnix de Bruijn, sales manager of Damen Marine Components. “Especially the ships from the 8,500DWT series need a lot of lateral movements, because they commute from port to port and have to manoeuvre a lot.” Damen Marine Components has adopted this wish. In consultation with the management boards of Arklow Shipping and Ferus Smit, it was decided to replace the NXA rudders from the original design. The 8,500DWT series has therefore been fitted with Barke® High-Lift flap rudders. With the progressive rotating flap, the Barke® rudder generates high lifting forces at large rudder angles and low drag at small rudder angles. This aids in sideways shifting.Because there was no time for this with the 16,500DWT series due to the delivery time of the Barke® rudders, the best alternative was sought for this series. These four ships are equipped with Master rudders. With rudder angles of up to 65°, this fishtail rudder provides high lift. The design can be optimised for many different types of ships. Arklow Shipping is very pleased with the conversion of the rudders and the behaviour of the ships, which are now used to great satisfaction. In addition to the rudders, the ten Arklow vessels are also equipped with the Commander™ Rotary Vane steering system, including hydraulic power unit (HPU) and the Damen Marine Components control system. The four 16,500DWT series ships are 145.5 metres long and 19.25 metres wide. The six ships from the 8,500DWT series have a length of 116.89 metres and a width of 14.99 metres. Bureau Veritas has classified all ten ships as Ice class 1A, one of the highest ice classes. Recent news

Although the inland tanker has now been in service for a quarter of a century, the rudders still look as good as new. "It's a system you can rely on: it always does what it's supposed to do." When the Raffael was on the slipway for inspection last year, Erik Zandstra (50) received compliments for the condition of his ship’s rudders after all that time. “Not bad, eh?”, says the owner of Zandstra Tankvaart from Scharsterbrug in Friesland with a note of pride in his voice. "There's never anything wrong with it.” The hull of the Raffael, 110 metres long and 11.4 metres wide, was built in 1996 by Santierul Naval Orsova SA in Romania and finished at Damen Shipyards Hardinxveld. Back then, the tanker was fitted with two HD rudders and a 2DWK steering system. In 2015, the HP100 control system was converted to HP1000, the rudder system and steering gear are still in their original condition. Zandstra acquired the ship in 2004 and it has been in operation much of the time since then. He transports xylene and benzene on a fixed route: from Geel (Belgium) to Rotterdam, from Rotterdam to Godorf (Germany) and from Godorf back to Geel. “It's really intensive work, you're on the go night and day", he says. "But I always get the vessel exactly where I want it." He doesn't even need a strong bow thruster for that. "Most ships have 500 or 600 horsepower bow thrusters, whereas I make do with a little one with just 350 horsepower. That does mean I'm a lot more dependent on the rudder system at the back, but that's not a problem. I can steer and manoeuvre just fine." The HD rudders are known for their excellent manoeuvrability. They deliver optimum performance in different operating conditions (high and low water) and under different circumstances. The lift of these hydrodynamic profiled rudders is enormous. The rudders don't have to constantly steer to keep the vessel on course, which means that steering correction is rarely needed. That saves fuel, whilst maintaining speed. Careful According to Zandstra, there are two reasons why the rudder system has kept going for as long as it has without any problems. On the one hand is its proven quality, on the other hand is the loving way he treats the Raffael. "Of course it's remarkable that it still looks like new, that's not something you see every day. But it's a case of how you treat the ship. You see vessels 25 years old that are full of dents and scratches. If you look at the Raffael from front to back, you won't see many dents. I'm very careful with it." "As long as you keep everything up to date, you won't have a problem. Ten years…

These rudders belong to a 154 x 22m cruise ship. We equipped this vessel with the two rudders during newbuild in 1997. Now, after 24 years of operation, the starboard rudder had to undergo some service to extend its already long life in such a demanding role. The job was performed in close cooperation with our trusted Singaporean representative Scanvik. After the parts of the starboard rudder were replaced, the aft ship was fully painted and both flap rudders were tested to confirm that everything worked perfectly, with great success. The rudders are now good to go, for many years to come. Recent news

Now, they’ve got their own steering gear to work with, tailor-made by Damen Marine Components. “This way, they can experience practice whilst still at school.” The steering system issues an alert: a defective cylinder! Still only a nautical student but thrown into the deep end already. What to do? On the brighter side: you’re not at sea. The steering gear is not on board a ship, but located in the Nautical College in Den Helder, part of ROC Kop van Noord-Holland educational institution. The faulty cylinder is one of the alerts deliberately built into the control system. “Normally, we design these systems to actually prevent these kinds of problems,” Cor de Wit, Service Sales Manager of Damen Marine Components, explains with a smile. “But in this case, it serves a purpose; it’s purely educational, so the students can learn from it.” And they’re very happy with it in Den Helder. The Nautical College offers five nautical courses, ranging from secondary vocational education (MBO) level 2 to level 4. “We had been in need of our own steering gear for a long time,” Erwin de Haan, maritime coordinator, says. “Previously, we could only demonstrate a steering system based on pictures and drawings. But it’s one of the main systems on board a ship, so we really wanted to be able to apply that theory from books into practice.”Training They found what they were looking for in Hardinxveld-Giessendam. Damen Marine Components not only supplies advanced systems for different types of vessels, they also attach value to training and teaching the new generation. A type-1DWK steering system was specially built for the maritime students in Den Helder, suited for a single propeller with one rudder and a maximum steering angle of two times 45 degrees. With the push of a button, the teacher can initiate a malfunction that needs to be resolved, such as a defective cylinder, loss of power or a broken pressure sensor. “It’s exactly what we wanted: being able to mimic faults in the steering gear, so the students need to figure out what’s wrong,” Erwin de Haan explains. “Of course, you don’t want that in a normal steering system, but to make a steering system suitable for educational purposes, you DO need it.” “The fact that we can do this proves very effective. Everything becomes clear to the students much faster, because they have images and sounds they can relate to. That’s a major advantage over a basic drawing or photo. They’re set to work with a hydraulic diagram in hand and have to search for symbols and descriptions of functions. They also practise emergency steering and emergency procedures. On board, you steer with a steering wheel on the bridge, but a backup…

The 180-metre, 30,635 GT RoPax vessel operates on the Dover-Calais crossing, the busiest shipping lane in the world. The nearly 30-year old vessel is equipped with twin Barke rudder systems engineered and made by Damen Marine Components (DMC). Replacing the stock on the starboard rudder enables the ferry to extend its already long life in such a demanding role. The project involved three Damen companies working closely together. Damen Verolme Rotterdam (DVR) hosted the vessel while DMC coordinated the project and managed assisting service engineers from DVR and Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam (DSR). The works began with the removal of the rudder and its stock taking placing in DVR’s no. 5 drydock. The rudder together with its worn stock was then transported by road to nearby DSR where it was disassembled and the parts cleaned. Meanwhile, DMC had designed and supplied the new rudder stock and delivered it also to DSR, ahead of installation.The most technically exacting part of the project was the fitting of the new stock to the rudder. This had to be done to the finest tolerances using techniques including bluefit to ensure optimal performance, and it had its risks. Any errors in the machining that affected the positioning and finish, and the stock would have to be discarded and refabricated, with a high cost in time and money. The fitting took place at DSR and to ensure that the process went perfectly, experienced service engineers from the sister companies teamed up under the guidance of DMC and used the old rudder stock for a trial fit. This determined the exact values that the replacement stock would need to meet in order to fit the rudder blade perfectly. Tests took place during the machining in order to ensure that the process continued on track. With the new rudder stock fitted to the correct values, the blade was hung vertically and the new stock inserted to confirm that it fitted. The two parts were then transported to DVR and mounted in the vessel where the gap between the rudder stock and blade was measured and determined to be exactly as specified. Finally, the rudder and steering gear were then prepared for operations and a swing-test was performed to confirm that everything worked perfectly. “We completed the entire project on time and without any delays by bringing together skills and resources from across the Damen Group,” says Walter Treffers, area manager service sales at DMC. “For the ship owner it was crucial to have the ship out of the dock on schedule, and this was achieved thanks to the excellent cooperation and daily meetings between the yard, DMC, DVR and DSR. We wish the Pride of Canterbury safe journeys.” Recent news

Total overhaul of used DMC-built azimuth rudder propeller nozzles is a growing business with a new annual record of 25 orders set by late September 2013 already. Nearly all of them involved assignment from Schottel GmbH to whom they had originally once been delivered brand-new. The nozzles are collected and returned in an almost weekly truck service between the Schottel main plants in Spay (on the Rhine) or Wismar, Germany and DMC Gdansk, Poland (DMCG).Eight steps “Refurbishing a basically worn-out nozzle is a minimum eight-stage operation”, Dik Verhoef added. “If repair is required too, a single nozzle may take a few weeks.” Judging from the astonishing photos enclosed, this is no surprise. DMC Suzhou is part of Damen Shipyards Group, which has a strong presence in China. The factory in Suzhou builds propeller nozzles and other propulsion parts for both worldwide clients and for Damen's shipbuilding facilities in China. The work includes: - Shotblasting - Damage inspection - Measuring (and adjustment) of mounting plate alignment - Non destructive testing of major connection points - Search for leaks - Repair - Replacing anodes - Final shotblasting and 3-layer painting. The nozzle service has gradually been growing over the years, leading up to the new whole-year record of 25 makeovers set in September already. Verhoef: “If a rudder propeller unit is repaired on location abroad, we’ll pick-up and redeliver the nozzle there.” Recent news

The client is Tersan Tersanecilik San. Tic. Aṣ., based at Yalova City on the Sea of Marmara, and the equipment will be installed on a 108-metre Factory Freezer Trawler vessel. Designed by Skipsteknisk AS, design number STL191L, she is currently in build for the Russian fishing fleet operator JSC PT Okeanrybflot. The order is for a single, customised Barke® rudder with a surface area of 16 m² and a Commander™ rotary vane steering gear that delivers a torque of up to 430 kNm. In addition to the hydraulic components of the rotary vane, DMC will deliver indicators and controls; Follow-up, Non-follow-up in Main Bridge, Follow-up in Wings and Follow-up in AFT.The system is classified RMRS KM (*), ICE3, AUT 2, REF, Fishing Vessel and is scheduled for delivery in December this year. Damen’s Barke rudder is ideal for vessels such as large fishing trawlers. It is a highly robust and reliable design that delivers excellent manoeuvring performance while at the same time being noise and vibration-free. With the flap linkage sheltered in a streamlined housing it is protected from ice, sand and floating objects and the mechanical components are contained in a grease-lubricated housing. Additional features that make the Barke rudder a dependable steerage solution is its overload protection; the flap linkage is safe from impact in the event of excessive force being applied and rudder movement is restricted should the flap become blocked. The flap linkage and bearings are designed with minimum clearance to ensure the least possible vibration, noise and wear. Mr. Nazim Yaṣar, Project Manager at Tersan Tersanecilik San. Tic. Aṣ., said: “We are interested in developing our relationship with DMC and this first step was already done by placing on order for rudder and steering gear system. This would be a good opportunity for both parties to do a business for future projects.” Recent news

Over the last ten months, Damen Maaskant Shipyards Stellendam (Maaskant) has outfitted the 41-metre hull from stock. The vessel, designated UK 46, is for Hakvoort Brothers, based in Urk, the Netherlands. A key feature of the vessel is the installation of twin Optima nozzles manufactured by Damen Marine Components (DMC). This is the first time that Maaskant has installed these in a fishing boat. The nozzles are Damen Optima L/D 0.4 models with a diameter of 3.63 metres. The stainless-steel collars surrounding the propellers deliver improved thrust both ahead and astern and so require less engine output for a given speed. In addition, they also enhance performance at low speeds and give less resistance at higher speeds. The fishing winch also represents a milestone for both Maaskant and DMC. It is the first such winch to be manufactured by DMC and was built to a design by Maaskant. A third Damen company also played a role in the fit-out of UK 46, with Damen Anchor & Chains supplying their trademark products to the vessel.“It’s been a real pleasure to complete this trawler and see her afloat at last, and to work with our sister companies to make it a success,” says Eric Moerkerk, deputy director at Damen Maaskant Shipyards Stellendam. “The hull has been here at Maaskant for more than ten years and we have long looked forward to it being out at sea where it belongs. This is the first time that we have fitted a trawler with nozzles and while it is early days for the vessel, the indications are that she is working well and the nozzles are delivering the expected efficiencies. The next three fishing boats that we will be building will also be fitted with nozzles from DMC.” Kees Oevermans at Damen Marine Components added; “The cooperation between DMC and Maaskant has been very good and fast. We worked closely with all the relevant departments including the project management and design functions. The benefit of this partnership for the client is that when our products arrive at the yard, everything fits and performs as promised.” Beam trawlers use outrigger booms to tow two trawls, one on each side. In the North Sea they are commonly used to catch shrimp and flatfish. The last such fishing boat to join the Dutch fishing fleet was the Catharina KW-145, launched in 2006. Prior to that, Maaskant delivered two others; the Cornelia BR-14 in 2004 and the Jan Cornelis GO-22 in 2006. Both these were also built to the Damen Maaskant design.Arie van den Adel, Chief Operating Officer of Callan Marine, stated: "Our dredges depend on these working vessels to complete large scale public and private projects. We are proud to have the quality of winches provided by DMC on these important new builds." Ronald Beekhof, Sales Manager Damen Marine Components, added: “It…

Together with our trusted US service representative Ships Machinery International, we dismounted both Barke® Flap Rudders and successfully performed an overhaul during dry docking. The clearances of the rudders were measured, and the condition of the rudder stocks were thoroughly checked, which were all in a perfect state. To ensure the performance of the rudders, the sealing and linkage system of both rudder blades were overhauled. After that, both rudders were mounted back, and a swing test was performed to make sure everything was working perfectly. The video shows the swing test of one of the rudders. The tug is back in operation as we speak. Safe and prosperous journeys to the vessel and its crew. Recent news

The pulling and braking force, in combination with the transmission, determine the application of this type of winch. The photos show our gearbox-driven towing winch. This winch type ensures that the speed of the winch is automatically adjusted to the required pulling force. The variable speed allows the winch to always run at the highest possible speed. This eliminates the need to manually choose between two or three-speed models. Our gearbox-driven towing winch has various design options available, such as the drive (hydraulic or electric) and drum configuration (single, split, or double). We design winches entirely according to your vessel’s requirements, both standardised and custom-built. Recent news

The agreement will be effected on the 1st of October and the organisation will be incorporated into the full-service specialist in lifting and hoisting technology. For Liftal this is a strategic expansion in the Rotterdam region, for Damen a choice to stay with its core business. Damen Hoisting was established five years ago as a business unit of Damen Anchor & Chain Factory B.V., located on the premises of Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam in Schiedam. The hoisting division serves customers from various markets such as the maritime, offshore, industrial and civil engineering industries. Specialist services and activities are carried out in the field of lifting and hoisting under the EKH quality mark. Reasons for the sale include market saturation and Damen’s strategic choice to focus more on its core business. Liftal Hijstechniek has been active in the south-west of the Netherlands and in various European markets in the field of testing and certification of hoisting and lifting equipment for maritime applications, oil/gas/wind energy sectors, industrial markets and the construction sector since 1998. From its Belgian branch, the company covers the connecting regions in Belgium such as Antwerp, the Terneuzen-Ghent canal zone and port areas on the coast. Both management boards are happy with the acquisition, Damen Hoisting’s General Manager Perry Rikkers says; “First and foremost, we are pleased because this guarantees the employment of the seven Damen employees of Hoisting. We are fully confident that this acquisition will positively help our customers and that they will continue to receive top service. This is a positive step forward for all involved.” Hans Hirdes, Manager of Liftal, adds; “Geographically, the takeover of the activities of Damen Hoisting is a nice addition to Liftal Hijstechniek’s current working area. In addition, given the presence and concentration of shipping, offshore, wind and large industry, the Rotterdam region offers sufficient potential to further expand our activities. Partly in view of the promised support from the Damen Group, we are confident of continuing and further expanding the activities of Damen Hoisting within Liftal Hijstechniek.” Work already started under existing agreements and contracts will be completed under Damen Hoisting. Work that has not yet started but has already been agreed will be performed by Liftal under the conditions agreed with Damen Hoisting. Recent news

May it be coasters, workboats, or inland tankers, we manufacture hydraulic units in all shapes and sizes, and for all vessel types. Standardisation of our HPU’s allows for serial building, which decreases manufacturing lead time and increases production efficiency. At DMC, we build complete hydraulic systems for various essential ship systems such as steering gear, winches, bow thrusters, towing pins, and more. Both standardised and custom-built. Recent news

Next to our standardised portfolio, we offer custom hydraulic solutions. May it be for steering gear, deck equipment, nozzles, bow thrusters, you name it. The project in the photos is a one-off custom-built hydraulics systems powered by three 400V 110kW electric motor driven pumps. This integrated system will supply the hydraulic power for the entire deck gear (winches, cranes, towing pins, and capstan) of a workboat. A special technical feature is that the bow thruster will be powered by the deck equipment system as well, while normally this is done by a separate closed loop pump powered by the main engine.

The vessel was unsteerable because of issues with its rudder (from another maker). The job needed to be performed within a short timeframe since the ship had to continue its journey sooner rather than later. After discovering the nature of the problem, our colleagues went straight to work; the rudder stock and gudgeon had to be replaced. The rudder was fully refitted and ready to be installed back into the ship within a couple of weeks. The repair was carried out at Damen Shiprepair Curaçao. A swing-test was performed to make sure the rudder functioned perfectly, which was exactly the case. The vessel has been sailing its course ever since. Recent news

Extensive testing is important to guarantee the performance of our winches. But what does such a test involve? When we have completed the building process of a winch, we place it on our test bench, which has a capacity of 300 tonnes. Then a factory acceptance test (FAT) is performed on 100% load. Testing on 100% load means to determine the maximum operating capacity of a winch and is more important than you think, here’s why: 1. Brakes and clutches are run-in and calibrated 2. Less uncertainties during commissioning and/or trials 3. Faster commissioning process (=cost saving) The FAT test is carried out under the supervision of a classification society (Lloyds Register, Bureau Veritas, etc.). A final paint job is done after the testing procedure is completed, and after that, the winch is ready for transport and installation on board. Recent news
