In all shapes and sizes
Nozzles of Damen Marine Components
When it comes to nozzles that allow you to optimise your shipping movements, you quickly realise Damen Marine Components is the industry leader. Nozzles are our core business and we offer a wide range of models and sizes unparalleled in the inland shipping, dredging, fishing and terminal industries. Our nozzles form the heart of our complete hydraulic steering and manoeuvring systems and are manufactured to the individual requirements of the customer. In consultation with our sales and design experts, we first analyse the customer’s sailing profile. Based on this, the nozzle is manufactured in one of our own factories in Poland and China.
Environmentally friendly production
Thanks to our in-house developed fabrication system, each nozzle diameter is produced as sustainably and economically as possible by means of the ‘spinning method’. This involves a process of mechanical cold moulding that results in a complete, single-weld profile. The fully automatic process can go up to a diameter of eight meters with all types of (stainless) steel. The spinning method minimises lead-time and our ecological footprint. Hence, both production method and practical use of a DMC nozzle significantly reduces your carbon footprint. Our in-house range includes the following models: Wing, Optispec, VG 40 and the best-known nozzle in the industry: the Optima. With its reduced noise vibration level and high thrust, both forward and reverse, this model makes all the difference in shipping.
