Damen Shipyards Group Opens New Engineering Centre in Helsinki

By | 2019 Newsletter week 20 | No Comments

Damen has established a presence in Finland for the first time. The Helsinki office has been set up to take advantage of the depth of engineering expertise that exists in the country following the group’s entry last year into building large vessels for the Ro-Pax, Cruise and Offshore markets via its new Romanian yard, Damen Shipyards Mangalia. The new office will augment and extend Damen’s engineering capability in this market segment.

Finland was selected as the location because, along with Italy, Germany and France, it is one of the leading countries in the world in the design and build of cruise and ro-pax vessels; this in combination with particular expertise in ice-class vessels, a growing segment of the cruise market.
