Dutch ship-building group Damen is planning to grab a slice of the nascent floating wind turbine installation vessel market.
Dutch group Damen Shipyards is developing a new class of vessel that will be capable of supporting the next big development in offshore wind; the large-scale roll-out of large floating offshore wind turbines.
One of Europe’s most successful shipyard groups, Damen, has decided to build on spec a trio of crew-change vessels for the rapidly expanding offshore renewable energy services market.
Damen Shipyards has announced it has taken a new 'low carbon' offshore vessel to the concept stage after calls from operators for lower emissions and increased on board comfort.
Damen has acquired the Keppel Verolme shipyard in the Rotterdam Botlek area from Keppel Offshore & Marine.
