Damen Shipyards Den Helder


Damen Shipyards Den Helder started out as a small ship repair business in 1923 and seventy years later joined the Damen Shipyards Group. Now the yard is focused on repair and maintenance for the offshore, dredging, fishing and towage sectors, although we do also welcome the occasional new build project. The shipyard has two locations: one yard is located in Den Helder and the other in Oudeschild, a small port on the island of Texel.


Damen’s unique shipbuilding concept is based on delivering what our customers want: the best quality, proven designs, short delivery times, low maintenance and excellent resale value. The result is a work method with the perfect balance between standardisation and custom-built vessels. And of course we offer a broad range of customer services.




Damen Shipyards Den Helder 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, Bureau Veritas.


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