Unique partnership between Damen Shipyards Group and Bakker Sliedrecht for AMV 3 project

26 November 2019

Shipbuilder Damen Shipyards Group and electrical system integrator Bakker Sliedrecht join forces in the construction of a new complex offshore diamond mining vessel for De Beers Marine Namibia. The two companies signed a cooperation agreement for project AMV 3 at the Europort in Ahoy, Rotterdam.

The e-integrator and shipbuilder will be responsible for the project engineering together as a team. Normally the engineers work separately from each other. This is the first time that Bakker Sliedrecht is operating in this form, as an electrical system integrator of Damen Shipyards Group. The unique and transparent partnership means better quality assurance, higher efficiency and cost-effectiveness for both parties. 

Within the new construction project, Bakker Sliedrecht will take responsibility for the electrical system integration, detailed engineering, the supply of 150-meter switchboard and the supply of consoles and electrical systems. Damen Shipyards Group is responsible for the installation of all components on board the ship.

The new diamond mining vessel will be built at the new Damen Shipyards Group yard in Mangalia, Romania. Once Additional Mining Vessel 3 has been delivered, the vessel will be used for diamond mining off the coast of Namibia from 2022 onwards.
