NIBC Bank and Damen Financial Services celebrate their extended co-operation that enables an increase of the financing facilities for Damen vessels. Their continued and increased partnership was agreed recently. Offering financing possibilities, the partners aim to accelerate emission reductions in the maritime industry.Financial lease or operational lease options allow operators in the maritime industry to renew or extend their fleet. In the highly competitive sector of offshore, harbour and inland operations, the capital investment to acquire new vessels is complicated for operating companies. Damen Shipyards offers financing possibilities to their clients, enabling them to purchase the advanced and efficient tools for maritime operations that Damen supplies. Financing is specifically available for workboats like tugs, fast crew suppliers, multicast, small ferries and barges. Damen is serving clients with financing possibilities for clients to purchase vessels for more than a decade now. This has resulted in a strong track record, both towards financial institutions as well as towards maritime companies. Lease contracts from Damen always include a buy-back guarantee. Should a company not succeed in their operations, the vessel can perform profitable with another client. By participating in the financial risk of a clients’ operation, Damen clearly expresses to be sure about the possibilities for their clients to operate efficiently using Damen vessels.
