Odessos Shiprepair Yard S.A. renders services which satisfy the requirements of our customers. They meet the criteria set by the classification societies, international standards on safety of navigation and the NATO-allied quality assurance publications.
5000 vessels have been docked at our yard from 1955 to 2020.
Odessos Shiprepair Yard S.A. is situated at the southern end of the city of Varna, on the island between the old and new canals connecting the Black Sea and the Lake of Varna and is about one mile far from the mouth of Port Varna. Yard’s location is extremely favourable in view of the significance of Varna as a big industrial and tourist centre. Located at the point of intersection of multiple transports, communication and commercial main lines, the shiprepair activity is secured in terms of timely delivery of materials.
All quays and docks are provided with main pipelines for acetylene, oxygen, compressed air, water and steam supply as well as with power supply.more
Damen Shipyards Mangalia is located on the Black Sea coast of Romania and is a joint venture between Damen and the Romanian Government with Damen responsible for the operational management of yard. Mangalia is the largest shipyard in the Damen portfolio and its integration into the group opens up the possibility of Damen constructing and converting larger and more complex vessels than was previously possible, with particular emphasis on RoPax ferries, cruise ships, big offshore vessels and offshore structures.
The management team led by Chris Groninger is now working on optimizing the yard for its new rebuild focus, as well as expanding its repair and maintenance client base and developing an offshore construction capability. The yard occupies a single site of nearly one million square metres and has 1590 metres of quayside. Three dry docks range in size from 302 by 48 metres to 360 by 60 metres with craneage to match. It has a comprehensive range of skills and workshops on site for newbuild and repair projects including high capacity steel and painting facilities.
The yard was originally known as 2 Mai Mangalia Shipyard and began building new ships in 1976. In 1997 Daewoo-Mangalia Heavy Industries S.A. took control of the yard and changed the focus to building large container ships, bulk carriers and tankers. In late 2017 Damen acquired Daewoo’s shareholding and in the summer of 2018 took operational control.more
