Damen Shiprepair Dunkerque


Welcome to our shiprepair yard in Dunkerque

Damen Shiprepair Dunkerque’s (DSDu) high level of expertise has been achieved by more than 50 years of experience, with the yard established in 1968. We are ISO 9001 certified, and our size allows us to perform repair and conversion work on oceangoing and offshore vessels up to 294 metres  in length. Over time, we have developed a particular focus on shortsea vessels (such as ferries, RoRo and RoPax), dredgers and offshore vessels. Due to our strategic location, ferry operators have become frequent customers of DSDu and rely on our capable workforce. Safety and quality are our priorities. Our HSEQ Department has ample resources to ensure permanent project coverage, leading to the timely completion in a manner that is both safe and in keeping with the agreed standards.
