Damen was established by two brothers back in 1927. Today, with more than 9,000 employees, operating 33 shipbuilding and repair yards, the Damen Shipyards Group has earned a leading position in the shipbuilding world. We are an international company, but, at heart, we are still a family business with family values and a deep respect for our maritime heritage. Our aim is to become a global market leader in the niche markets of shipbuilding, shiprepair & conversion and services.
Damen has delivered more than 6,000 vessels in 100 countries and delivers some 180 vessels annually to customers worldwide. Damen’s focus on standardisation, modular construction and keeping vessels on stock leads to short delivery times, low total cost of ownership and reliable performance. We offer a wide range of products including tugs, naval and patrol vessels, high speed craft, ferries, dredging and offshore vessels and super yachts (Amels).
SHIPREPAIR & CONVERSION
Damen Shiprepair & Conversion (DSC) has a worldwide network of 15 repair and conversion yards with drydocks ranging up to 420 x 80 metres. DSC yards have extensive experience – completing more than 1,500 projects every year, from normal drydockings for scheduled maintenance to damage repair, right up to extensive refit and conversion projects.
Being active in the maritime industry demands continuous vessel reliability. For nearly all vessel types Damen offers a broad range of services, including maintenance, spare parts delivery, training and the transfer of (shipbuilding) know-how.
Damen is also specialised in the design and production of various marine components including propeller nozzles, rudders, special towing winches, anchors, anchor chains and steel works.
