In 1963, the Brest yard expanded its facilities with the construction of a second dock. 1968 saw the yard expand its capabilities even further, paving the way for Brest to become the top French maritime repair centre. DSBr builds on this heritage by continually developing existing skills, technical expertise, and by maintaining its high-quality facilities.
Several hundred vessels have been serviced at DSBr over the past 25 years, ranging from crude oil tankers, product tankers and shuttle tankers, to ferries, oil rigs, bulk carriers and container vessels.
We have performed lifecycle maintenance and repair work on more than 100 LNG tankers. The experience we gained from this work has become an invaluable asset to our clients. A long-term collaboration with the local Chambre de Commerce et d’Industrie ensures the continuation of ship repair and conversion activities by DSBr, fitting perfectly into the long-term strategy of the Damen Shipyards Group.
