On the 23th, 24th and 25th of June, Sail Den Helder and the Navy days will take place. Damen will be present during these two impressive nautical events in the north of the Netherlands. Not only is Damen main sponsor of Sail, it is also participating in the Navy days.
Over many years, Damen has developed a unique relationship with the Royal Netherlands Navy in which the navy functions as the launching customer for many Damen built vessels. Therefore Damen will host a Virtual Reality (VR) demonstration on the vehicle deck of HNLMS Karel Doorman. In this demonstration the visitor can virtually walk around in the aft section of a patrol vessel of the Holland-class. This VR-simulation is developed by Damen in close collaboration with the Royal Netherlands Navy (CZSK) and Ordina.
Damen does not only build modern navy vessels. In 2014 the building of a unique sail clipper, the Shabab Oman II, for the Royal Navy of Oman was completed. About 15 years earlier the Cisne Branco was delivered. Both ships will visit the Sail and with that Damen is well represented between the classical tallships of Sail Den Helder. In short, this weekend will be the perfect moment to discover more about Damen.
