  1. Seguridad primero

    Un paso seguro hace que el embarque y desembarque sean lo más rápido y sencillo posible.

  2. Viaje a alta velocidad

    La optimización de tiempos de navegación para un número mayor de miembros del personal hasta ubicaciones más alejadas de la costa, permite realizar operaciones eficientes sin importar las circunstancias.

  3. Comodidad gracias al ciencia

    El FCS 7011 dispone de una exclusiva combinación de cuatro tecnologías de reducción del movimiento que trabajan conjuntamente en perfecta sinergia, creando un inigualable confort para el pasajero que, prácticamente, allana el mar cuando este tiene una altura de las olas de hasta 3 metros.

Think different



The long distance transportation of offshore personnel has traditionally been undertaken by air. Times are changing, however. The desire for increased safety, in combination with greater cost efficiency, has proven to be a great stimulus for change. In answer to these market demands, a state-of-the-art crew change solution has emerged. A solution resulting from considered, collaborative R&D and powerfully blending both innovation and proven technologies, to face the future reliably and with confidence.



Introducing Damen’s innovative integrated crew transfer solution, the FCS 7011 represents a quantum leap forwards in terms of speed, comfort and accessibility. Designed to carry personnel to and from offshore assets in a broad weather window, it expands the options available for offshore marine access using future-proof logistics.



The starting point for developing the FCS 7011 was broad market consultation throughout the offshore crew change value chain. The widespread desire for increased safety with greater cost efficiency has resulted in a solution that adds a new dimension to the logistical mix. The time has come to think differently in a new era of offshore personnel transportation.



Optimised sailing times for increased numbers of personnel, to locations farther from shore, results in more efficient operations no matter the conditions. A comfortable transit with increased workability has become a reality due to advanced design and the latest technologies.



The FCS 7011 is a core part of Damen’s commitment to developing a new and more sustainable business model for the offshore crew transfer sector. To deliver efficiencies and cost savings, this involves not only determining the ideal mix of waterborne and airborne transport to specific locations, but also looking at different ways of contracting to allow more transparency and flexibility. This programme includes looking at moving away from traditional day rate fee structures to those that might charge on a pay per person / transfer, and even the possibility of vessel sharing among operators so that a single large vessel like an FCS 7011 could embark multiple crews and deliver them to multiple platforms on a single run. For a vessel that may have a lifetime of several decades, the many factors that contribute to the total cost of ownership, from build to operations to decommissioning and disposal, are all coming under the microscope.




Our commitment to the future extends beyond ensuring the success of your business and ours. It also encompasses providing a safe environment in which employees can conduct their work and leisure activities, which includes minimising the environmental impact of our products. The maritime industry recognises the increasingly urgent need for greater environmental awareness. With operations often not far from the shore and close to sources of food, the environmental impact of every vessel needs to be kept to a minimum. Damen has developed tested and delivered several vessels with diesel-electric propulsion systems, which effectively reduce fuel consumption, emissions and noise levels. Fully electric propulsion (in combination with remote charger stations) is the logical next step and an interesting option for nearshore operations.

Our research and development programmes, with the close cooperation of our partners, have helped create a vessel that delivers a new level of comfort and safety for high speed, long distance transfers.
DP calculations and seakeeping advice were provided by MARIN (Maritime Research Institute Netherlands). The ship hydromechanics department of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) was responsible for the model tests, calculations and additional design input. Advice on human motion experience and the development of the Virtual Horizon was undertaken by TNO (Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research).
Kongsberg Maritime, VEEM and Ampelmann worked closely together with Damen to optimize their hardware and control algorithms to develop a fully integrated solution enabling impressive workability at various locations around the world.

Innovation and the development and testing of new ideas lies at the heart of progress. They are at their most effective when they are done in cooperation with other organisations. This is why we work closely with numerous research institutions, universities, maritime organisations and, of course, clients.
And not just in the Netherlands, but all over the world. The revolutionary Sea Axe bow is just one example of what can be achieved through cooperation. Whilst much of our R&D work goes on at our headquarters in Gorinchem, the Netherlands, Damen operates on a global scale. Wherever we are, the results from all our R&D activities benefit the work done by all the yards and subsidiaries of the Damen Shipyards Group.

Desde los años ochenta, Damen y la Universidad Técnica de Delft han colaborado en un programa de investigación con el fin de mejorar el comportamiento en el mar de las embarcaciones de gran velocidad. Esta cooperación dio lugar al «Concepto de Barco Alargado», en el que se basan los modelos de gran éxito Stan Patrol 4207 y 4708. Se desarrolló el concepto «Axe Bow», una forma de casco con un comportamiento inigualable en el mar. Usando está innovación, Damen diseñó las lanchas patrulleras Sea Axe y los Fast Crew Suppliers.

Se realizó un estudio para evaluar la influencia de distintos componentes de barcos en el flujo de aire alrededor de la superestructura de un barco. Mediante experimentos con simulaciones y validación CFD en túnel de viento, se establecieron las condiciones de trabajo a distintas velocidad de viento y de navegación, junto con distintos ángulos del viento y rumbos del buque.

Usando el análisis de elementos finitos, puede simularse el comportamiento real de la estructura de un barco. Pueden encontrarse y corregirse los efectos no deseados.


Todos los barcos de Damen benefician de los conocimientos acumulados durante los programas de investigación en curso dentro del Grupo. Damen trabaja con institutos de investigación de reputación mundial, como la Universidad Técnica de Delft (Países Bajos), el Instituto de Investigación Marítima de Holanda (MARIN) y la Organización Neerlandesa de Investigación Científica Aplicada (TNO), así como otras universidades prestigiosas y otras empresas líderes.
