Damen to Continue Repairing Dutch Navy’s Vessels
- Equipment & technology
A covered repair facility frequently used by the Royal Netherlands Navy has recently been acquired by Damen Shiprepair Harlingen (DSHl), part of Damen Shiprepair & Conversion.
The repair, blasting and paint hall previously belonged to Strametco Vastgoed BV.
The hall is located on the DSHI yard premises and accessible via the yard’s ship lift. With the acquisition, Damen will continue to offer its services to the Navy, and to other clients such as Rederij Doeksen and Wagenborg Passagiersdiensten, which have frequently made use of the hall in the past.
Besides undertaking repairs, blasting and painting activities, the company could also use the hall for conversions and damage repairs. Damen Shiprepair Harlingen can now repair vessels up to 90 metres in the fully covered hall.
