Damen Shipyards Antalya
Damen Shipyards Antalya is the go-to yard for high-tech composite shipbuilding. Drawing on extensive experience from Vitters (the yard’s former owners), Damen offers specialised knowledge of the lamination process required in modern composite yacht and shipbuilding. The yard is located in the Antalya Free Zone, and so has access to excellent shipbuilding and supply chain infrastructure, ensuring local availability of all necessary knowledge and equipment.
Together with partners like Vitters and Seaway, which specialise in engineering composite vessels and the associated logistics, Damen has developed state-of-the-art knowledge enabling series production of composite vessels.
Forward thinking strategy
With these newly developed techniques, Damen can build lighter vessels. This translates into reduced fuel consumption, maintenance and environmental pollution while still maintaining Damen quality and strength of its port, offshore and security-related workboats. This strategy fits to Damen’s overall vision on energy use and consumption for the coming years.
