In today's rapidly changing world, it is important to stay ahead of developments. That's why navies worldwide are constantly reviewing their fleets in order to adapt to new Operational and Mission profiles.
Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding (DSNS) responds to global market demands by offering flexibility and unbeatable technical and commercial solutions. We specialise in Refits, Conversions, Upgrades, Modifications, Midlife Modernisations and Life Extensions of all makes and types.
An experienced partner
Over the years, DSNS has earned the reputation of a reliable partner that delivers on time and within budget. Refits can be executed in one of the many shipyards of the Damen Shipyards Group or in any other suitable location.
DSNS has a long and successful track record in the fields of naval design, engineering and construction. We collaborate closely with customers to provide tailor-made solutions for all Refit and Conversion requirements. We cooperate with all leading manufacturers of weapons and sensors.
Our Refit expertise ranges from Naval Architecture, Engineering and Steelwork to Propulsion, Electrical and Auxiliary systems and from Outfit & Furnishings to Integrated Combat Systems.
The success of DSNS lies in its ability to manage the entire Refit Process, from Engineering to Testing and Verification. This is accomplished by a dedicated Project Management team that carries out the project in partnership with the customer's own Project Team. Our Project Management team members are all highly qualified and seasoned professionals.
To ensure a smooth Refit Process, our Project Management team assumes responsibility for Customer Communication, Risk Management, Quality Control, Cost Schedule Status and Compliance with Contractual Requirements. Our team also coordinates the Engineering, Purchasing and Construction/Outfitting teams and oversees the verification, acceptance and delivery of the vessel. The team's main objective is to deliver the project within budget, on time and in accordance with the technical criteria. Customer satisfaction also receives top priority.
Refit on location
DSNS has an outstanding reputation in both Construction and Refits. With the support of Damen’s extensive repair and conversion branch we will execute refits of Damen-built or non- Damen built vessels. It is the customer’s choice to have the work done at a Damen Shipyard or any other suitable location.
