Damen Information

Damen Verolme Rotterdam (DVR) has been an active ship & offshore repair yard since 1957 in the Port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands. It is located on the shores of the Nieuwe Waterweg, which runs into the North Sea. Our yard is known for its drydocking, repair and maintenance capabilities and has an extensive 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 Ship repair & 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 Engineering department is a small and flexible organisation, with lead engineers assisting the multi-disciplinary tenders and projects at the yard with requested technical input and advise.
