About Damen Shipyards Singapore

Damen Shipyards Singapore’s main activities relate to newbuilding and the repair of high-speed aluminium vessels. Since we joined the Damen Shipyards Group we have been able to expand our knowledge, innovative projects and technical developments.

A project-driven yard

Because we focus on the newbuilding and repair of high-speed aluminium vessels, our organisation is largely ‘project’ driven. The project department is central to the organisation, which also has engineering, purchasing, planning, production and quality control departments. All of these departments report to our project department to ensure the successful execution of contracts. The Damen Shipyards Singapore Field Services department is responsible for the commissioning of new vessels and also warranty/post delivery support to our customers.

Joining the Damen Shipyards Group

In the year 2000 the Damen Shipyards Group purchased this modern facility from the Kvaerner Group of Norway. The company was renamed Damen Shipyards Singapore and the existing management and workforce was retained, bringing their high skill levels and extensive experience in aluminium vessel building with them.  Under the previous ownership more than 40 high-speed vessels were successfully built and delivered over a 10- year period. Since the Damen take over, the yard has delivered in excess of 50 aluminium vessels, including fast ferries, crew boats, pilot vessels, patrol vessels and personnel launches.
