At our Damen Shiprepair & Conversion (DSC) yards we bring together our rich history of naval shipbuilding, maintenance and repair. Through Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding (DSNS), we have 140 years of newbuild naval experience. From this stems our knowledge of cutting-edge naval technology, the most cost-efficient, reliable and proven design solutions, and our ability to understand and speak your language.
Any ship, any service
We handle every type of naval vessel: frigates, corvettes, patrol vessels, fast-attack crafts, logistical support, amphibious vessels and more. We can provide a variety of services such as technical services, maintenance and repair works, but also more complex services, such as a total vessel refit (life-time extension) and conversions (new functionalities). In addition, we offer a network of trusted suppliers, subcontractors and partners, all of whom are suitably experienced with naval standards to perform work on onboard equipment, such as combat systems, flight decks, hangars or helicopter traverse systems.

Yard & Dry dock availability
For naval projects we can welcome you at a variety of yards, especially Vlissingen, Brest, Dunkirk, Den Helder, Rotterdam and Harlingen.
