HNLMS Tromp (F803)

HNLMS TrompHNLMS Tromp is one of four De Zeven Provinciën-class Air-defence and Command Frigates (LCF) built by Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding. The Frigates perform two important roles: A command role in facilitating the operations of the deployable and operational staff, and providing anti air warfare (AAW) protection for an entire fleet. The most striking characteristics are the ships’ stealth technology and high degree of automation of the ships’ systems which means that they can be operated by a ship’s company of just over 200.

Conference Reception

The Conference Reception for INEC 2014 will be hosted by the Royal Netherlands Navy aboard HNLMS Tromp. This is a unique opportunity for all participants to visit this innovative class of ship and to learn more about the role of the Royal Netherlands Navy worldwide. HNLMS Tromp will be moored in Amsterdam and transportation will be provided for all participants from the Marine Establishment Amsterdam at the close of sessions on day two.Industrial visitDue to the operational demands of HNLMS Tromp, it is regretted that the Industrial Visit which was scheduled on Friday 23 May 2014 has been cancelled. HNLMS Tromp still remains at the heart of the INEC 2014 programme with the Conference Reception hosted by the Royal Netherlands Navy taking place aboard the ship on Wednesday 21 May 2014 commencing at 1800 hours.
