Damen Shipyards Den Helder has signed a contract with the Netherlands Ministry of Defence to support various vessels of the Royal Netherlands Navy, the company announced on 11 July.

The midlife upkeep contract covers logistic support ship, HNLMS Pelikaan, along with hydrographic survey vessels, HNLMS Snellius and HNLMS Luymes.

The vessels will undergo maintenance and modernisation work including being equipped with new hull plating, renewal of radars and communications equipment and maintenance of the ship’s systems, along with regular maintenance.

Damen will begin work on the project later this year and expects to complete it in 2021. Work will be distributed between Damen Shipyards Den Helder and Damen Shiprepair Harlingen.
