Damen Shipyards Group is opening its latest service hub, in Hamburg, Germany.
This takes the total number of hubs to fifteen, spread across Africa, the Americas, Asia and the Middle East, and Australia.
The hubs ethos is to provide a local service, worldwide, and the Hamburg hub will act as the one-stop-shop for Damen customers located in the region seeking warranty service, training and service support.
The hub is also expanding its network of local suppliers to ensure that products and services are sourced locally wherever possible.
“A key part of our service offering is the provision of integrated maritime solutions,” said Carsten Wiese, Service Hub Manager, Hamburg.
“By being geographically closer to our customers, we are well positioned to engage with owners throughout the lifecycle of their vessels. This enables us to offer targeted and relevant solutions to help minimise long-term operational costs, particularly when vessel connectivity facilitates knowledge-powered operations, and also maintenance support solutions.”
The Hamburg hub will serve not only Germany but also Denmark and Poland.
