Damen extends shipbuilding range in China
Damen Yichang Shipyard, the joint venture between Damen Shipyards Group and Sinotrans, has extended the range of ships it can offer customers – previously cargo vessels under 15,000dwt - to include gas tankers, offshore support vessels, dredgers, barges and pontoons.
“We have been building high quality vessels for a long time, this is more about adjusting the organisation to new products,” said Hans Voorneveld, executive director at Damen Shipyards Group. “Damen Yichang Shipyards is offering a new portfolio of sophisticated vessels in one integrated package – from engineering, steel building, outfitting and trials right through to commissioning.”
The yard boasts steel-cutting facilities, six berths for section building and assembly and a sideways launching system, and is staffed by around 1,000 employees. The joint venture between Damen and Sinotrans was founded in 1999.
