Decommissioning your ship / offshore asset

Disposal / decommissioning

Ship disposal & decommissioning

More than the dismantling and recycling of vessels and offshore structures

Scrapping redundant vessels and large offshore structures is a complex process that requires the greatest care. Damen offers a competitive and responsible dismantling service for ships and structures at a number of our European shipyards. ISO 14001 certified, they operate to the highest safety and environmental standards in cooperation with world class decontamination, disposal and recycling contractors.

Safe & efficient

With the possibility to use one of our drydocks and scrap-steel cutting grounds (impermeable surface) zero-discharge operations are ensured. Our project management teams are dedicated to executing any challenging disposal/decommissioning projects safely and efficiently. We also like to keep you informed by providing full transparency regarding the progress made and in the final documentation. Recycling plans are based on risk assessments to prevent any health, safety and environmental risks. As we are focused on green solutions, we apply the concept of remanufacturing wherever we can.
