Description

Damen Shiprepair Curaçao is strategically located in the Caribbean, en route to the Panama Canal, and outside the Hurricane Belt. The yard offers excellent working conditions within a natural bay. On 1 February 2017, Damen Shiprepair & Conversion took over the management of the Curaçao Drydock Company, established in 1959. Under the name of Damen Shiprepair Curaçao it will continue offering a full range of services in maintenance, repair, refit and conversion of vessels and offshore constructions of all sizes. The yard has two graven docks and almost 2 kilometres of quay sides outfitted with 13 cranes that can handle vessels up to 150,000 DWT. Its capacity will further be increased by adding a floating dock. The shipyard is located at crossroads of major shipping routes. This, together with more than 50 years of experience, application of international standards and membership of the Damen Shipyards Group is amongst the key advantages of the yard. Damen Shiprepair Curaçao is holder of the ISO certificates Quality Management System ISO 9001:2008 and Environmental Management System ISO 14001:2004. Both certificates were renewed in 2016. From this strong foundation we aim to improve our service levels and standards over the coming years. The certificates were presented by the auditor, Lloyd’s Register Nederland BV, on behalf of Lloyds Register Quality Assurance. The yard is situated in a natural lagoon and is sheltered against strong wind and swell. The graven Antillia dock, 280 metres in length, 48 metres width, 5.7 metres draught (dock-head), 8.48 metres draught (entrance) and 150,000 tonnes, is one of the largest docks in the Caribbean. The second dock, also graven, measures 193 by 26 metres. In 2017 two floating docks will be added to the current facilities. The yard offers 1.5 kilometres of repair quay and more than 500 metres of mooring quay.more

Our in-house engineering capacity designs any modification to create the most efficient and useful vessels.
