Construction & Delivery
Currently, DSNS has several vessels under construction for the Royal Netherlands Navy: four Oceangoing Patrol Vessels (OPV) and a Joint Logistic Support Ship (JSS), the largest military vessel ever built by DSNS. The first three OPV’s, “Holland”, “’Zeeland” and “Friesland” were transferred as scheduled to the Royal Netherlands Navy in 2011 and 2012. The fourth OPV, “Groningen” is in its final stages of construction at Damen Shipyards Galati, under supervision of DSNS.

Recently, several Damen Stan Patrol (Sea Axe) vessels have been delivered to, amongst others, Jamaica and Albania. Furthermore, the US Coast Guard´s new Sentinel Class building programme consists of over 30 patrol vessels of Damen-design. Last but not least, an ultra high-speed Interceptor (55 knots) was delivered to privately-owned Specialized Vessel Services for maritime safety operations.

In addition to these naval and coast guard vessels, three SIGMA frigates are being built for the Royal Moroccan Navy of which the first two, Tarik ben Ziyad (105m) and Sultan Moulay Ismail (98m), have recently been delivered.
