Established in January 1995, Damex Shipbuilding & Engineering is a self-sustaining organisation where all the necessary shipbuilding skills are readily available. We act as a license holder and an after-sales service location for Damen Shipyards Holland. Certificates from classification societies such as Lloyds Register of Shipping and Bureau Veritas are available. Apart from a wide range of Damen Shipyards’ designs, all kinds of special crafts in steel or aluminium can be built, according to our customers’ design. Damex is equipped with two slipways, an outfitting quay and its necessary facilities and knowledge to complete any newbuilding, engineering, repair or maintenance project. We have a well-trained and experience workforce that carries out any repair ranging from minor steel and aluminium repairs to mayor conversions and rehabilitations. Our in-house engineering capacity designs any modification to create the most efficient and useful vessels. We are fast and cost-efficient because we work with Damens proven designs in standard hulls and we profit from the extensive level of knowledge within the Damen Shipyards Group.
We have one slipway dedicated to the repair and maintenance of vessels up to 400 tons and a maximum length of 60 metres. We also have transverse parking facilities to accommodate several vessels simultaneously, so we can service our customers as soon as possible. A tower crane covers the whole area of the repair slipway and the transverse parking facilities. Our outdoor slipway can handle vessels with a length of 100 meters.
Damen Shipyards now has ten repair yards worldwide that are dedicated to ship repair and conversion work. Six of them are located in the Netherlands, where Damen Shipyards was founded. All of our yards can offer facilities to complete almost every repair job or conversion. All of our yards offer the same services as Damen Shipyards worldwide.more
