NIBC Bank extended its cooperation with Damen Ship Lease and Damen Financial Services in the field of vessel leasing. NIBC's financing enables Damen to offer financial or operational lease solutions. These include state of the art work vessels in the offshore (wind) energy sector and (hybrid) tugboats for port activities, among others.
"We are very pleased with the cooperation and this new long-term commitment from NIBC," said Jan Willem van Helden, Managing Director Damen Financial Services. "With this fund we can facilitate the fleet renewal and sustainability of various customers' fleets while also stimulating the growth of the Damen Group", adds Martin van Eyk, Manager Damen Ship Lease. "At the same time, with the latest Damen vessels and technology, we contribute to the efficient operations of our customers and a reduction of the ecological footprint of our industry."
Jeroen Conijn, Managing Director FinTech, Structured Finance & Mobility at NIBC: "We are proud of this partnership with Damen. We provided the first financing to Damen Ship Lease almost ten years ago. Damen Ship Lease has shown in these years to fulfil a clear need of its customers with its lease solutions. With the continuation of our financing, we support the further growth of this activity."
