The company's Brisbane hub, aimed to serve Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific, will provide warranty services, maintenance, training and spare parts, having been recently opened by the Honorary Consul of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Captain Kasper Kuiper.

The new facility will handle all warranty or maintenance issues and offer training courses, as well having a spare parts store onsite.

Roland Briene, Damen Area Director Asia Pacific, says: “We are really pleased to have established a full Service Hub in Australia from which to serve our many clients in the region. There are some 70 Damen vessels operating in the region currently, with more to come.”

Damen say that they are working with the same highly skilled local engineers and contractors that it has been doing for more than a decade, ensuring continuity of service levels. Every customer will be able to access the Damen web portal where they can find information about their vessels, drawings and order any spare parts needed.
