“A Shipbuilding and Ship Procurement Strategy for Canada?”

4 November 2009



Features of dutch naval shipbuilding l.jpg
Features of Dutch naval shipbuilding war (1665-1667)

  • The Netherlands is self-sufficient in naval shipbuilding

  • Most naval weaponry is imported

  • a long-standing naval/maritime cluster the RNLN at the centre as a spider in the web

  • RNLN is leader firm

  • RNLN itself designs its new ships

  • RNLN itself designs Sensor, Weapon and Control Systems (SEWACO)

  • Much of Dutch expertise on naval technology is located within the Navy’s design office.

  • Mutual trust is more important than competition

Dutch naval shipyards through the 1950s 1980s l.jpg
Dutch naval shipyards through the 1950s-1980s war (1665-1667)

Each yard had its own specialty

  • De Schelde - frigates

  • RDM -submarines

  • Van der Giessen de Noord - minesweepers & minehunters

  • [Wilton Fijenoord - 2 frigates and 4 submarines]

  • [ NSM - (until the mid-1960s) 3 frigates]

  • Damen Shipbuildings - exports Fast Attack Crafts (since 1980s)


Dutch naval exports in the past l.jpg
Dutch naval exports in the past war (1665-1667)

Weak export position for new Dutch naval ships

  • political factors

    • foreign governments support exports of own naval yards

    • no export licenses (Taiwan, South Africa)

  • RNLN’s as launch customer is essential, butRNLN’s requirements: advanced & expensive

  • Small export successes in 1980s: Greece, Indonesia, Taiwan

    More successful in exporting second hand warships

  • In the past: Peru and Indonesia

  • Recently frigates to Belgium, Portugal, Chile minehunters to Latvia

    Thales Netherlands successful: radar and fire control equipmentnew or in refitting programs


Dutch naval shipyards after 2000 l.jpg
Dutch naval shipyards after 2000 war (1665-1667)

Damen Schelde Shipyards

  • Virtually the only shipyard left, surface vessels

  • Different management and strategy

  • SIGMA-design: modular design of corvettes

  • Successful in exports: FAC, corvettes, patrol vessels (Indonesia, Marocco)

  • Co-operation with and take-over of foreign yards(e.g., Galati yard in Romania)

    Re-entering of IHC Merwede?

  • Design and Construction of ATS, LPD and AOR

  • Multi Role Ship for New Zealand Navy (2006)

  • Still little experience
