Damen Shiprepair Harlingen


Damen Shiprepair Harlingen is located in the northern part of the Netherlands, in the city of Harlingen. Dating back to 1600, the shipyard has one of the longest histories in the group. It is easily accessible through the Wadden Sea without any obstructions such as locks, bridges or tidal restrictions, up to a guaranteed draft of 7.5 meters.


The yard can accommodate vessels up to 120 meters with the added benefit of a shiplift at their disposal, thus offering the possibility to dock several vessels at the same time.


Whether a project involves conversions, repairs and / or maintenance, our 50 motivated and highly skilled employees are committed to provide the international maritime world with a dedicated service. Damen Shiprepair Harlingen is almost unique in being permitted to accommodate tankers in a non-gas free or inerted condition. Scheduled service, Class surveys and preventive maintenance are key concepts in reliable shipping and are our core business. Damen Shiprepair Harlingen is ISO9001/14001 certified and, as with all other Damen repair yards, is committed to a safe and healthy workplace, everyday, everywhere.

The shiplift at Damen Shiprepair Harlingen enables the yard to lift vessels from the water and transfer them to the repair platform or into one of the covered sheds. One of these sheds is especially designed for blasting and painting activities. Our highly skilled professionals, engineers and project managers deliver technically high quality work in the most efficient manner, whether it involves metal construction work, propulsion systems, carpentry, hydraulics, electrical systems or pipework. If needed, the capacity can easily be scaled up to the necessary level in order to achieve the best delivery times without any loss of quality.
