Damen Shipyards Group is opening a new service hub, in Hamburg, Germany, taking the total number of hubs to 15, spread across Africa, the Americas, Asia and the Middle East, and Australia.

The Hamburg hub will serve not only Germany but also Denmark and Poland. Damen's hubs ethos is to provide a local service, worldwide, and the Hamburg hub will act as a one-stop-shop for Damen customers located in the region seeking warranty service, training and service support. However, customers do not necessarily need to own Damen vessels. The group’s resources are available to all seeking advice and support as well as access to facilities and expertise.

Like all Damen service hubs, Hamburg is staffed by local personnel with experience of ship building and maintenance in their region and able to respond quickly to enquiries. The hub is also expanding its network of local suppliers to ensure that products and services are sourced locally wherever possible.

Carsten Wiese, Service Hub Manager, Hamburg, said: “A key part of our service offering is the provision of integrated maritime solutions. 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.”

While the hub acts as a single point of contact for customers in the Germany, Denmark, Poland region, it is backed by the full resources of the Damen group, and the hub can coordinate with other hubs around the world to ensure continuity of care as a vessel moves across the oceans.
