ABOUT US

The Engineering Department at Damen Dredging Equipment consists of several teams in the field of both mechanical engineering and E&A. The design teams are product oriented, with a focus on trailing suction hopper installations, dredging pumps and propulsion systems, standard stationary suction dredges, and custom-built stationary suction dredges. The teams are managed by an engineering project leader (team leader) and operate independently. In addition to custom-built projects, the Damen organisation also works continuously on standardising and improving equipment and components. The manufacture of dredging equipment is carried out at our own shipyard but also at other shipyards around the world.

THE ROLE

The objective of the proposed internship or graduation project is to design and develop dredging equipment, and their electrical components, instrumentation and controls.

KEY ACCOUNTABILITIES

Background

Dredging equipment is subject to harsh conditions. Exposure to maritime, saline environments is already demanding for most steel structures. In addition, the dredging process itself and the way the equipment is operated and maintained pose extra challenges to the design of the equipment.

Damen Dredging Equipment (DDE) designs and builds standardized product ranges of dredging equipment, as well as customized solutions designed to the client’s needs. A typical dredging vessel consists of a floating steel construction with highly loaded mechanical static and rotating equipment. The supporting systems (e.g. hydraulical, electrical, HVAC and control systems) have to be integrated as well. Furthermore the design shall comply with all relevant Class Rules and International Standards.

Projects envisaged to be carried out in the near future are a.o.:

  • Remote control and data acquisition solutions for dredgers, booster stations and production measurement units, e.g. for after sales purposes
  • Design of Class compliant electrical systems on board of dredgers
  • Design of power distribution and (automated) controls of electrical driven dredge pumps
  • Design of (parts of) an operating desk for a dredging simulator
  • Optimization of product related documentation of our product range of dredging instrumentation

Details of above projects can be elaborated in a job interview with the candidate.

Description

An internship or graduation project typically consist of the following activities and results. These requirements are pending specific test objectives, and terms defined by the educational programme:

  • Literature study;
  • Design/run analytical models of physical processes (by Matlab, MathCAD,...);
  • Negotiations with the supplier of components which are to be used
  • Discussing the design with other departments, such as Purchase and Work Preparation
  • Hardware design using E-Plan and possibly (assist with) coordination of fabrication
  • Software design for PLC and HMI systems (Siemens) or PC based systems (Windows)
  • Coordination and execution of tests at our production facilities, in the Netherlands or abroad
  • Reporting and demonstrations to stakeholders within the project
  • Taking responsibility for your own project management….

SKILLS & EXPERIENCE

  • Bachelor or Master student in Electrical Engineering, Industrial Automation or Energy Technology
  • Autonomous, practically and result driven. Good communication skills
  • Good command of Dutch and English, especially in writing.
