As a member of the Dutch Underwater Knowledge Center (DUKC), Damen took part in the Undersea Defence Technology Conference. In a joint exposition, the participants demonstrated the latest on Dutch underwater technology and knowledge.
The DUKC has a coordinating role in the bundling of all Dutch knowledge, expertise and experience in the field of underwater engineering. It is an intensive collaboration between companies in the Dutch maritime industry (with amongst others: Thales, RH Marine, Rexroth, Van Halteren), Dutch knowledge institutes (such as TNO and MARIN) and the Ministry of Defence.
A recently published article in the magazine Forum of the Confederation of Netherlands Industry and Employers (VNO-NCW), explains what the DUKC could mean for the development, construction and maintenance of new Dutch submarines. (Dutch only)
