Damen Verolme Rotterdam


Welcome to our shiprepair yard in Verolme Rotterdam

Damen Verolme Rotterdam (DVR) has been an active shiprepair yard since 1957 and is situated very close to the North Sea in the Port of Rotterdam. Our yard is well known for its drydocking, repair and maintenance capabilities and has a long and successful track record regarding the modification and conversion of upstream offshore units.

On June 30th, 2017, the yard was acquired by the Damen Shipyards Group and became a Damen Shiprepair & Conversion (DSC) company. DVR can accommodate any seagoing vessel or floating offshore unit.

The shipyard has a rich history and is proud to retain the Verolme name. Cornelis Verolme started building the large drydock in Rotterdam’s Botlek area in 1970. The 405 x 90 m graven drydock can easily accommodate rigs, semi-submersibles and jack-ups, as well as the largest vessels in the world. The two other graven docks can cater to the larger vessels sailing the globe.
