Damen Shiprepair Brest

Located at the entrance to the English Channel and directly fronting the North Atlantic Ocean, Damen Shiprepair Brest is strategically well located for many different trading routes to and from Europe.

Capable of accommodating almost any ship

We have five berths at our quays and three large dry docks offering dry docking capacity for vessels or offshore units up to 420 meters long and up to 80 metres wide. We offer a broad range of services for many vessel types including LNG tankers, oil tankers, semi-submersibles, FPSOs, offshore construction vessels, jack-up rigs, shuttle tankers, cruise liners, ro-ro vessels and ferries. The highly skilled workforce is particularly well known for its LNG tanker expertise.

Main focus on repair and conversions of larger vessels

At Damen Shiprepair Brest we mainly focus on both ship repair and conversion of oceangoing and offshore vessels and platforms in a broad sense. Naturally all vessel types and sizes are most welcome and owners are treated with equal importance, sense of urgency, care and attention. However, given the size of our dry docks and deep draft entrance, the yard traditionally accommodates the larger segment of vessels and offshore units. Specific markets in which the yard has developed a strong experience are:

  • VLCC & ULCC, Suez and Aframax tankers
  • LPG & LNG carriers
  • PCCs
  • Capesize & Panamax bulkers
  • Cruise liners
  • RoRo & Ropax
  • Offshore platforms, semi-subs, jack-ups
  • PSVs, OSVs and various other offshore working vessels
  • FPSOs
  • Conversion works on various vessel types.


Damen Shiprepair Brest continuously improves its service levels through use of the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) certified management system.

The shipyard has achieved a significant milestone, achieving ISO 9001:2008 (the successor to ISO 9001:2000) certification, demonstrating customers receive consistent high quality, reliable and efficient service.


The certificate was presented by the auditor, Lloyd’s Register Nederland BV, on behalf of Lloyds Register Quality Assurance.

ISO 9001 is an internationally recognised quality management system representing reliability, sustainability and trust.
