As well as building vessels at its own yards all over the world, we  able to support clients with vessel construction at a location of their choice via Royal Technical Cooperation (RTC).

RTC Customers can choose exactly what they need, whether it is only the vessel design under a licence, a full material package or a combination of the design, materials, shipbuilding assistance, advice and training. Furthermore, RTC can renovate or construct the yard facilities for the newbuild vessel. This highly flexible option results in a valuable transfer of technology and enables owners to enjoy our quality, combined with the convenience of local production. Advantages of having RTC as your shipbuilding partner include :

  • Proven designs from an extensive product range
  • Design flexibility to meet specific demands
  • Approach completely geared towards client preferences
  • Logistics of components adapted to building yard needs
  • Building assistance at all levels of the shipyard’s organisation, from welding up to higher management
  • Yard development to facilitate shipbuilding projects with RTC
  • Attractive financing options
  • RTC makes it possible to be a Damen customer, wherever you are in the world.

Through the license agreement the complete our portfolio is disclosed and clients can draw on reliable, proven designs that have evolved with feedback resulting from both construction and operation. If a design is not available off the shelf, a custom design can be made.

Material packages
For a oamen design, RTC can provide a complete material package ready for construction, but can also adjust the material package to the specific desires of the client. With Royal’s global network of suppliers, service centres and logistics expertise this can be key to the success of the project.

Building assistance
RTC can provide a broad scope of building assistance, ranging from construction up to management level if required. A dedicated site manager can oversee the building process and training for the local workforce can take place at a our yard or on-site as part of the project scope if the customer wishes.

Local construction
Of course, RTC can also build a complete vessel at a location of your choice, taking care of the entire project from start to delivery and after-sales service. In this case, it is necessary to gather information on the facilities at the construction site to make an inventory of all equipment and personnel that is needed for a successful project. RTC has a yard questionnaire available for this purpose. If desired, RTC can even help finding a suitable building location for your project.
