23 July 2018. Damen officially becomes Owner of Daewoo Mangalia Heavy Industries.
To signify its first day of operations at Damen Shipyards Mangalia in Romania, Damen held a modest ceremony at the yard on Monday, July 23rd. The celebrations mark Damen’s successful completion of the transaction with Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) for the Mangalia shipyard, formerly known as Daewoo Mangalia Heavy Industries (DMHI). The yard, which will be renamed Damen Shipyards Mangalia, will be operated as a joint venture with the Romanian Government. Damen will assume operational control.
The yard is located on the Black Sea coast, has three drydocks with a total length of 982 metres and 1.6 kilometres of berthing space. The docks, with a width of 48 and 60 metres, will provide Damen with capacity to cater for larger maritime vessels and structures. As such, this move represents a strategic complement to Damen’s current shipyard portfolio, with the possibility for the construction and conversion of larger, high-end, and complex ferries, offshore construction vessels, etc. The yard’s total area of approximately 1 million m2 makes it the largest yard in the Damen Shipyards Group.
On 9th September 2016, C.D.M. (Curacao Droogdok Maatschappij) and Damen Shipyards Group signed a concession agreement for the future operation of the Curacao Drydock Company.
The Shipyard is strategically located in the Southern Caribbean, en route to the Panama Canal, and safely outside the Hurricane Belt. As per present situation, Curacao Shipyard can accommodate vessels up to 270x48m up to (Aframax) size.
Within the 2nd quarter of 2018, its capacity will be expanded to two more floating docks of 200x30m and 229x36m.
On June 30th, 2017, the Yard was acquired by the Damen Shipyards Group and became a Damen Shiprepair and Conversion (DSC) Company.

Damen Green Solutions (DGS) in partnership with Damen Shiprepair & Conversion (DSC) and AEC, the scrubber supplier, is trialling a new technique for retrofitting scrubbers.
Designated the Modular Approach, this new process is designed to cut the time that a vessel typically needs to spend in dock from two or more weeks to just a few days.
This dramatic reduction in downtime, in combination with a more cost-efficient, certified scrubber, will be welcomed by ship owners and operators.
