The Damen Shipyards Group has grown from a single shipyard in 1927 to a group of companies that today operates over 30 ship and repair yards and related companies all over the world. In 1969, Kommer Damen revolutionised shipbuilding with the introduction of the standardised shipbuilding concept. This practice of modular building principles has brought international recognition and has consolidated Damen’s development and success to its present position as one of the world’s leading independent shipbuilders.
The Damen Shipyards Group constructs vessels on six continents and builds an impressive range of ships for use across the entire spectrum of maritime sectors. The Damen portfolio includes small utility vessels, advanced high-performance tugs, tankers, dredgers, offshore support vessels and superyachts.
