As an international shipbuilder Damen has extensive knowledge of each vessel and of transport contracts and conditions, and we have many years’ experience of shipping to distant and remote destinations. In short, our customers benefit from our reliable and competitive shipping solutions.

Spare Parts Services

Damen Parts Services offers competitive prices, efficient and cost-effective delivery and short response times. With our years of experience we have established strong buying power and an extensive supplier network. By expanding our network of global service hubs, we are able to shorten our response times. Our service goes beyond fast part delivery; we also offer different replenishment solutions resulting in having parts in stock just before you need them.

To minimise lifecycle costs and to improve a vessel’s performance, it’s crucial to have the right spare parts. Our Computerised Maintenance Management System (CMMS) allows stock control replenishment to be completely automated.

 

 

Online parts store

To support our customers on a 24/7 basis, Damen has created an online parts store on our Services Portal www.damenservices.com. Here you can order directly from our online catalogue of spare parts. Our scope of supply is neither limited to Damen-vessels only, nor to the catalogue. If your required parts are not available online, we invite you to make online requests. Your services manager will gladly do what it takes to source the relevant component. With Damen as your partner you can experience the benefits of a one-stop-shop.
