Damen Shipyards Group has been building and repairing ships for all sectors of the maritime industry for nearly a century. We support the offshore sector in all its forms with a range of products designed in response to client and market feedback. Today, our offshore portfolio covers the entire range of small to medium sized vessels for the full spectrum of offshore activities, including renewables, oil & gas, deep sea mining and exploration. 

With first-class, strategically located facilities, including the Mangalia and Galati yards in Romania, Damen delivers vessels both from its proven, standardised series, tailored to individual client requirements via modular options, and fully customised, engineered-to-order projects, including complex, specialised vessels and offshore construction and fabrication works.   

Damen’s stated aim of being the world’s most sustainable shipbuilder means it is committed to ever-increasing levels of sustainability in its products and operations. Its investment in diverse R&D programmes, often working in collaboration with other industry partners, has led to the development of numerous innovations that improve efficiency and lower fuel consumption and emissions during both the construction and operation of our products, thus minimising their  environmental impact.

Damen Shiprepair & Conversion (DSC), part of the Damen Shipyards Group, has an extensive track record in repairing, refitting and converting very large vessels and structures, while at all times maintaining the highest standards of safety, including FPSOs and rigs. Its many facilities are strategically located around the world, with drydocks up to 420m long and 90m across. DSC’s Harbour & Voyage division ensures minimal or even zero downtime by bringing the maintenance and repair crew direct to the vessel or installation.
