Welcome to Damen Shiprepair Dunkerque

Damen Shiprepair Dunkerque’s (DSDu) experience with ship repair dates back to 1968, underpinning its current level of expertise. We are ISO 9001 certified and our size allows us to perform repair and conversion work on oceangoing and offshore vessels up to 294 metres in length. Over time, we have developed a focus on short sea vessels (such as ferries, RoRo and RoPax), dredgers and offshore vessels. Due to our strategic location, ferry operators have become frequent customers of DSDu and rely on our capable workforce. Safety and Quality are our priorities. Our HSEQ department has ample resources to ensure permanent project coverage, leading to timely completion in a manner that is both safe and in keeping with agreed standards.
