Towards the end of 2018, Damen held a keel-laying ceremony for the CEMEX Go Innovation at Damen Shipyards Mangalia in Romania. The vessel is the first Damen MAD – the next generation of marine aggregate dredgers.

Damen has designed the futureproof vessel for long-lasting durability for operations in North Sea conditions over the coming decades.

Particular attention has been paid to sustainability, safety and performance. The MAD will extract sand and gravel from the seabed at up to -55 metres. The keel-laying was the first to take place since Damen began the operational management of the shipyard now known as Damen Shipyards Mangalia in July this year.
