Damen's Lo Cost Crossover (One Ship - Many Missions)

Stumbling around the Internet on a Saturday morning -

The following is brought to you by MattReloaded on Warships 1 Discussion Boards.

A whole bunch of interesting stuff.







Quote
During the ASNE president's lunch at Arlington in February 2011, Hein van Ameijden (Managing Director of Damen) made a couple of points :

1) His main conclusion was that the US Navy was paying far too much for its vessels, about three times the price of comparable Royal Netherlands Navy vessels. He noted that this was a direct threat to the position of the USA as the free world's superpower, given the naval ambitions of China.

2) His main recommendation as a bystander to the US Naval Community was to sit together and set the conditions necessary to double the output in number of ships within the same procurement budget. The navy would have more ships, the companies would make just as much profit, the unions would retain their jobs, keeping production sites open would be much less of a problem; everybody wins.
Below are some of the slides that accompanied the speech he made back then :

I wonder if Irving can build like Damen - or if it will build like Lockmart?

The CSPS has nothing to do with low cost delivery of capability, and everything to do with jobs in Canada.

Fascinating platform, and good sales pitch by Daman.

Remember the CSC program is supposed to deliver 15 ships for C$26 billion!

But RN may have cost problems too.
