Damen Verolme Rotterdam (DVR) has been an active ship repair yard since 1957 and is situated in close proximity to the North Sea, in the Port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Our yard is well known for its drydocking, repair and maintenance capabilities and has a long track record of modification and conversion of upstream offshore units.
On June 30th, 2017, the yard was acquired by the Damen Shipyards Group and became a Damen Shiprepair & Conversion (DSC) company. This acquisition means an increase in offshore market capacity for DSC. The yard can accommodate any seagoing vessel or floating offshore unit. Recently, the yard diversified by adding offshore unit decommissioning to its services.
The shipyard has a rich history and is proud to retain the Verolme name. Mr. Cornelis Verolme started building the large drydock in Rotterdam’s Botlek area in 1970. The 405 x 90m graven drydock can easily accommodate rigs, semi-submersibles and jack-ups as well as the largest vessels in the world. The two other graven docks cater to the larger vessels sailing the globe.
