Damen has been working closely with the Den Breejen Group for more than two decades. The Dutch company has painted all new-build ships of the Royal Netherlands Navy (RNLN) since the first air-defence and command frigate (De Zeven Provinciën-class).
Damen Naval and Den Breejen Surface Protection Group have signed a contract for the complete preservation of the new Combat Support Ship (CSS) destined for the RNLN. The works are being carried out at Damen Shipyards Galati in Romania, where the CSS is being built.
Just like Damen, Den Breejen is a Dutch family business. With its head office in Sliedrecht and approximately 1,300 employees in the Netherlands, Den Breejen has been preserving naval ships at home and abroad since 1952. In addition to Sliedrecht, the group has a branch in Vlissingen for coordinating and carrying out painting work. The company also has a large facility in Romania, with approximately 350 employees.
