Damen Shiprepair Dunkerque (DSDu) has completed major refurbishment works to the yard’s floating dry dock. The dock, capable of taking vessels up to 180 metres in length and lifting 14,000 tonnes, is owned by the Port of Dunkerque (Grand Port Maritime de Dunkerque – GPMD) and is operated by DSDu.
Damen has introduced the Responder 5413 – a new First Line Assistance Vessel. The company has pioneered this versatile, 54-metre vessel partly in response to the increasing number of extreme weather events across the globe, believing it can play a vital role as a first response vessel, capable of assisting a relief or emergency operation in a number of ways.
Damen Shiprepair & Conversion (DSC) has recently completed works in Vlissingen and Brest on two major vessels in the fleet of dredging and marine construction specialist Jan de Nul Group.
