    Our decades of experience and investment in research and development have been fed into the designs over the years, and the result is a comprehensive range of pontoons and barges that enjoy a reputation for flexibility towards clients, high quality, excellent seakeeping abilities and attractive pricing.

    A wide range of Damen pontoons and barges in many different configurations are available from stock. This enables us to offer the fastest possible delivery times for our customers’ convenience. In many cases our delivery times can be reduced to just a few weeks or even days - making them unbeatable. As well as a wide range of standard designs to facilitate speed of delivery, we can also provide customised barges or pontoons to meet specific requirements.

    Damen maintains a dedicated Pontoons & Barges division, giving our customers a single point of contact for expert advice and support.

    Damen Shipyards built one of its first barges in 1969 and since then has constructed hundreds of pontoons and barges for customers all over the world.

    kommer damen takes over global activities damen shipyards group

    As a company our success is historically based on building all types of workboats including tugs, multicats and shoalbusters. Many industries use these workboats to handle and operate barges and, as a result, building non-propelled barges became common practice within our company, in numbers reaching into the hundreds. With demand for barges increasing steadily in recent years, Kommer Damen decided to start a new product group to focus on this sector, and the Pontoons and Barges division was born. We now have a specialised department to develop new products and work with clients on bespoke designs. Our portfolio consists of Pontoons, Bunker Barges, Hopper Barges and Crane Barges. For our standardised designs, a range of plug-and-play options are available, and we build and hold in stock many of our most popular barges to ensure ultra-short delivery times!


  • damen standard damen standard The delivery time for a Damen standardised vessel is considerably shorter than for one conventionally built. Our standard designs are available off the shelf and high demand vessels built on our own account for stock to ensure the shortest as possible delivery times.

    Damen’s focus on standardisation is one of our fundamental corporate values. In 1969, when Jan Damen handed the reins over to his son Kommer, the modular building concept was one of the first initiatives Kommer Damen introduced after listening carefully to client feedback.

    Four decades ago the standardisation concept was totally new in the shipbuilding industry, and even today it is still unusual. However, in each of our niche markets – from tugboats to pontoons and barges – Damen has developed a standard range.

    Although these vessels are all based on standard designs, they can be equipped from a wide of options to meet specific customer requirements. Our standard designs can also be tailor-made according to customer wishes or we can start from first principles and design a unique vessel. All of these options are no problem for Damen’s far-reaching capabilities.

    key to success StandardiSation

    Damen is the ideal partner for both standard and unique custom designs. We have decades of experience, a diverse portfolio of products and all the in-house expertise needed. All of these together ensure the best end result.

    custom-made projectsstandard pontoons and barges

    Damen’s standardisation policy allows us to reduce delivery times substantially. We build a wide variety of standard vessels on our own account and keep them in stock. All of our standard designs are worked out to the smallest detail, allowing us to deliver fully finished vessels very quickly and efficiently.

    We always have a global spread of stock available for the most popular models. These are built at various yards around the world to ensure that clients can have a new pontoon delivered within a few weeks, depending on transportation, which we also can arrange. Our focus is the provision of the best possible solutions for our clients in way of time, flexibility and quality.

  • Think global, acT local DTC

    Damen can supply pontoons and barges from its own shipyards or assist clients in building their own vessels locally via Damen Technical Cooperation (DTC).

    DTC can deliver everything from just the licence and vessel design right up to a full materials package for the entire Damen vessel portfolio. If required, DTC can also provide building assistance and even yard upgrades. This highly flexible option results in a valuable transfer of technology and enables owners to enjoy Damen quality combined with the convenience of local production.

    Demand for the DTC programme is being driven by factors such as the growing global trend for countries to place limits on imported goods and services to boost local production, and geographical restrictions that prevent the delivery of finished vessels to areas of operations due to limited access. Damen has responded by providing customers with a flexible, comprehensive solution that enables them to buy Damen vessels, wherever they are in the world, while satisfying local sourcing requirements.
