About us

Damen Engineering Gdansk is competence center for engineering to order, one offs and prototypes vessels with a strong drive for optimizing ship performance. Being part of the ’Damen family’ with years of experience gave us a chance to participate in challenging projects and innovative technical solutions.

As a Damen Engineering Gdansk, we were established in 2013 with 18 employees on board. Since then we developed our competences, skills and knowledge to reach 150 passionate and enthusiastic employees in 2019. The growing team consists of Naval Architects, Mechanical and Electrical Engineers. To have much better control over the project and more informed design process with greater certainty of final product we build a strong team of Project Managers and Supply Chain Specialists. All those combine competencies allow us to deliver products of the highest possible quality, on time and in accordance to planned budget.

We are set up to be involved into the engineering process from the moment when an idea is generated by the client to the vessel delivery. We are responsible for transforming the initial design into a complete and practicable engineering package. The experienced engineering department is also involved during the production phase of each ship and provides support as necessary. Close collaboration with the client during the whole process allows us to quickly respond to any changes and ensure we are delivering tailor made solution.

Having ambitious and open minded engineers led us to create R&D Team. It helps us not to stay still but to look forwards and seek innovative technologies to improve our products, exchange knowledge and work collaboratively within European environment.
