About us

Originally formed in 1893 as a small foundry and repair workshop under the name G. Fernic et Comp and extended in 1897 with the addition of a shipyard, Galati Shipyard grew to become an important part of the country’s shipbuilding industry through 125 years of geopolitical upheaval. By the end of 1970, Galaţi Shipyard had built hundreds of vessels including barges, tankers, cargo vessels, bulk carriers, tugs and fishing vessels. After 1975, the shipyard undertook some of the most technologically-advanced projects possible at the time, including building seven drilling rig platforms which are still in operation.
Cooperation with Damen Shipyards Group – by then already well established in the Netherlands and starting to develop its international business – started in 1994 with the subcontracting of cargo vessel hull fabrication. In 1999, Damen acquired the yard and introduced its standardized shipbuilding approach.
To date, the yard has delivered some 1,300 vessels, more than 450 of which have been built by the Romanian-Dutch shipbuilding cluster of Galaţi since 1999 for customers from 70 countries including Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Sweden and the United Kingdom, making the shipyard in Galaţi one of the biggest Romanian exporter of vessels.
Occupying a 55-hectare site, Damen Shipyards Galaţi has a workforce of nearly 1,500 plus up to 700 subcontractors’ staff, including 130 engineers from Marine Engineering Galati, the naval architecture company that is also part of the Damen Group.
