With a total of 45 drydocks, DSC offers a full range of services in maintenance, repair, conversion, and refit of vessels and offshore constructions of all sizes.

We decided to drydock the vessels at Damen Shiprepair & Conversion because of the good experiences we have had with them. They are flexible, practical and fast. They also have ready access to a large variety of well-equipped sub-contractors close by in the neighbourhoods of their shipyards.
