Damen delivers slipways in multiple configurations and in all possible associated local situations. Our longitudinal and transversal directed slipways are deliberately designed to drydock vessels or move newbuild ships into the water.
A Damen Shiplift is an optional lifting facility for drydocking vessels. From there ships can be transported or serviced on the platform.
This Shiplift is a remarkably efficient solution for yards with the capacity to berth and service multiple vessels. Total leadtime to dock is relatively low and occupancy rates can be increased to make your yard more productive.
Damen’s fingerpiers feature travelifts (or syncrolifts) as a system for lifting vessels out of the water for maintenance work or repair.
Damen Civil designs, engineers and provides technical assistance during the establishment of graving docks.
The Damen transfer area makes it possible to transfer a vessel perpendicular to the production and slipway lines. With this movement a vessel can be transferred from one production line to the other or to the slipway.
The Damen fixed linkspans consist of bridge sections supported on one side at the quay and on the other side supported by a suspension frame. This suspension frame is normally founded on piles, though other options are possible.
The Damen floating linkspans consist of a modular pontoon and a bridge section on one side supported on the fixed quay and on the other side attached to the pontoon. Both supports are designed as hinges which allow rotation.
The Damen catwalk is mounted on a steel or concrete piles supported jetty and can be used as an entrance way to get on - and reach specific places on - the vessels or mooring place for the long term. Outfitting work can be performed when a vessel is moored at a catwalk.
Damen designs, engineers and delivers jetties on steel or concrete piles, with either steel, concrete or wooden structures.

A breakwater is basically designed to protect the shores and harbours from influences of swell. It absorbs the energy of waves that hit it and it provides vessels opportunities to berth in relatively calm waters.
