Damen acquires Dutch repair yard
Damen Shiprepair & Conversion (DSC) has taken over Dutch repair yard D. van de Wetering in Rotterdam in order to further improve the quality of service for its customers.
The shipyard is one of the oldest ship repair companies in North West Europe having been operational since 1880. It specialises in all types of above-the-waterline repairs to sea-going vessels, and has extensive experience in delivering 24/7 harbour and voyage repairs across Europe.
Jaap de Lange, Director of Damen Services, said: “The experienced engineers of D. van de Wetering are an useful add to our existing pool of around 70 worldwide operating field service engineers. They can strengthen our service support in the field of warranty, technical assistance, maintenance, expeditionary repairs and refits.”
This takeover will allow Damen to further strengthen the depth of its service provision through the integration of these harbour and voyage activities into its existing network. These currently stretch across North-Western Europe into the Middle East and as far as Singapore and South Africa.
The integration of D. van de Wetering into the Damen Shiprepair & Conversion network will enable Damen customers to benefit from the availability of additional experienced and flexible specialists, around the clock, whether at DSC locations or in harbours across the globe.
The D. van de Wetering yard has already ceased operations and all activities have been transferred in the short distance to Damen Shiprepair Van Brink, in Pernis.
