Features of Dutch naval shipbuilding
  • 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/maritime cluster
dutch naval shipyards through the 1950s 1980s
Dutch naval shipyards through the 1950s-1980s

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]

dutch naval exports in the past
Dutch naval exports in the past

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

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
