28 September 2021 Damen took part in the 23rd DWT workshop in Linstow. More than a year has passed since the contract was signed between the BAAINBw and Damen for the F126 project. Much of this year has been spent developing and optimising the ship design and integrating suppliers into the project. Magiel Venema, Commercial Director of F126, says: "Damen is aiming for a strategic, significant cooperation with the German maritime sector. This exhibition offers us the opportunity to expand and strengthen our contacts with the German shipbuilding industry, both with the Navy, BAAINBw and suppliers. Next year we will definitely be there again."
