Countdown NIDV Exhibition Defence & Security 1…

The Dutch naval industry is a prominent sector that still contains an extensive submarine knowledge base. The rigorous, DUKC led, update of the current submarine class shows that the Netherlands still excels in this specific branch. In the field of technology, knowledge, duration and efficiency this update is unparalleled. The Netherlands truly stimulates international cooperation. The acquisition of military and strategically important submarines is the right moment to claim a leading role for the Dutch naval industry. We qualify thanks to the triple helix: the close and effective way of working between government, knowledge institutes and industry. With Damen Shipyards as main contractor the Netherlands are, together with her Swedish counterpart, leading in designing, engineering, building, making, testing, delivering, maintaining, and later modernizing the submarines. Export will be decided upon by the Netherlands. The built up knowledge will provide long lasting, high quality employability.
