Dredging expertise

At Damen Shiprepair & Conversion (DSC) we understand dredgers work in some of the toughest conditions of the maritime industry. We see solid teamwork, the spirit of innovation and the use of state-of-the-art materials as essential ingredients of success. With decades of experience in dredger repair and maintenance, our teams possess the problem-solving abilities to hold true to their promise of on-time delivery. And, we consistently expand our know-how through our long-lasting partnerships with some of the largest dredging firms in the Netherlands and Belgium.

Speed & flexibility

A dredger always needs to be ready for its next project; we understand our clients continually face tight deadlines. Our dedicated project managers safeguard the timeliness of every project and our aim is to offer maximum flexibility at every DSC yard. If needs be, our 24/7 Harbour & Voyage team is there to help you with any problem, whenever you need us and wherever you are.

Dredger works

We are ready to perform regular maintenance and repair projects but can also realise the most pressing refits, such as:

  • A full lifetime extension
  • Increasing stone dumping capacity of a side stone dumping vessel
  • Increasing hopper capacity of a trailing suction hopper dredger

From trailing suction hopper dredgers and cutter suction dredgers to fallpipe vessels and side stone dumping vessels, we are experienced in carrying out works on dredging specific equipment such as the hopper, suction pipe, bottom door/side door, cutter head, fall pipe and much more.

It was really a great cooperation.” (...) "Damen always tried to see if we could find a solution together. It was our mutual goal to get the vessel ready as soon as possible. And everything worked out very well. Flintstone went straight to work on a project!
