Engineering: Everything that is necessary to build a vessel

Damen Shipyards delivers around 180 vessels worldwide every year. Whether it’s a yacht, tug, workboat, frigate, high-speed craft or ferry, Damen delivers high-quality vessels for tomorrow’s markets.

The product design (Design & Proposal) and engineering are carried out mainly in-house and focus on the development of both existing and new Damen ship designs. The actual execution phase starts with the design of the vessel according to the requirements of the customer. Design & Proposal Engineers are in the lead during the initial design phase.

Global Engineering prepares the total documentation package and is also responsible for the design check. Engineering is organised according to product groups and management by the Project Manager Engineering. The activities are divided into basic and detailed engineering. Although the largest part of the engineering relates to standard vessels, there are always some client specific issues which require additional engineering activities. Using modern techniques, our engineers work closely with engineering partners from around the world and frequently witness the delivery of new Damen ships.

We are looking for senior engineering professionals for different yards all over the world with a bachelors or masters degrees focused on marine, mechanical or electrical engineering, as well as experience in engineering complex projects.

Follow our engineering colleagues as they go about their work and share the benefits of their experience.
