Smaller propellers and lower engine capacity required of Van der Velden Flex Tunnel

Inland shipping

Every ship is unique in regards to propulsion and manoeuvring systems in combination with sailing profile. That is why we think each vessel, whether it is new-built or refit, deserves a customized and high quality solution for her manoeuvring system. We offer complete systems and packages including nozzles, winches, and Van der Velden® rudder-, steering- and control systems and spoilers.

Damen Marine Components is leading in supplying nozzles and rudder- and steering systems for new-built vessels in the Netherlands. We outsell our competitors by providing no less than 70 percent of the market with our equipment, and by that, we maintain our position as market leader for new-built vessels in the Dutch inland shipping market.
