Curaçao ship repair deal for Nederex and Damen

Industry Database

Curacao Ports Authority (CPA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Nederex and Damen Shipyards Gorinchem to strengthen its port.

Damen will offer its ship repair and marine services from Curacao and will work together with Nederex to exploit the concession granted by CPA to Nederex within the St Anna Bay area last year.

"The MoU with Nederex and Damen will strengthen our port and is certainly a positive factor for the economy of Curaҫao,” said Humberto de Castro, CEO, CPA.

"It is our intention to have our own floating dock for maintenance and repairs for Damen customers here in the region," added Jaap de Lange, services director, Damen. "We hope to be ready for our first customer at the end of this year or early 2016."

A working group is already in place to work out the technical aspects, including obtaining the necessary permits for the activities surrounding this project.
