Internship or graduation: Research on Low Carbon Steel – Damen – Gorinchem


About us

The division Offshore & Specialized Vessels (OSV) develops a wide range of different vessel types, typically in the range of 50-150m in vessel length. The type of projects that we have is usually for one-off vessels, or small series, unlike our colleagues at Tugs for example. A major building material for OSV is steel, a material which is associated with a significant CO2 emission during production stage.

The role

We would like you to investigate the following questions:

  • How is shipbuilding steel currently produced and sourced? What are the main suppliers for Damen, who are the actual manufacturers, how is quality assured? What is the current’s CO2 emission of steel production?
  • What options are there to reduce CO2 emission of steel production?
  • What suppliers are working in which solutions?
  • What would be the impact of low-carbon steel on quality and certification requirements for shipbuilding?
  • What would the cost be, compared to “normal” shipbuilding steel, and how does this impact a typical vessel’s cost price?
  • Key accountabilities

    This assignment is mostly a market analysis. You will work on the design department of offshore wind vessels of OSV. You will have to gather the required information from many different sources, within Damen but also outside of Damen.
