In today's rapidly changing world, it is important to stay ahead of developments. That's why navies worldwide are constantly reviewing their fleets and upgrading their Operational and Mission profiles.
Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding's Refit and Conversion department responds to global market demands by offering flexibility and unbeatable technical and commercial solutions. We specialise in Refits, Conversions, Upgrades, Modifications, Midlife Modernisations and Life Extensions.
An experienced partner
Over the years, Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding has earned a reputation as a reliable partner that delivers on time and within budget. In 2004, Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding also established a dedicated Product Group for Refit programmes. We have been successful in this area ever since.
Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding has acquired considerable expertise in the fields of naval design, engineering and construction. We collaborate closely with customers to provide tailor-made solutions for all Refit and Conversion requirements.
Our Refit expertise ranges from Naval Architecture, Engineering and Steelwork to Propulsion, Electrical and Auxiliary systems and from Outfit & Furnishings to Integrated Combat System Components.
Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding's success lies in its ability to manage the entire Refit Process, from Engineering to Testing and Verification. This is accomplished by a dedicated Project Management team that carries out the project in partnership with the customer's own Project Team. Our Project Management team members are all highly qualified and seasoned professionals.
To ensure a smooth Refit Process, our Project Management team assumes responsibility for Customer Communication, Risk Management, Quality Control, Cost Schedule Status and Compliance with Contractual Requirements. Our team also coordinates the Engineering, Purchasing and Construction/Outfitting teams and oversees the verification, acceptance and delivery of the vessel. The team's main objective is to deliver the project within budget, on time and in accordance with the technical criteria. Customer satisfaction also receives top priority.
Refit on location
Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding has an outstanding reputation in both Construction and Refits. In the past, most of our Refit activities took place at our local Dutch shipyard in Vlissingen. But in response to market demands we now also operate internationally.
Excellent track record
We have completed many Refit projects over the years. Our proven trackrecord shows we are able to integrate our activities and, perhaps more importantly, the capabilities of our services worldwide.
