The challenge of managing 32 shipyards around the world is difficult from an operations perspective, but when you consider the health, safety and environmental challenges it can be a nightmare to not only standardize safe work processes but to ensure those standards are being followed.
Mark and Patrick sat down with Jan Willem Van Hogerwou, Damen Shipyard’s General Manager for North America to discuss some of these challenges, and why it’s important to follow your own HSE policies even when a client or other VIP is visiting one of your facilities.
Damen Shipyards is a Dutch company that is 100% family owned. They perform a wide range of services from repair and maintenance and retrofitting of existing vessels to new construction of offshore vessels.
