On Wednesday, April 11, 2012, Director André Hollander and Sales Manager Theo Kloosterman proudly announced the first ship repair order of Damen Ship Repair Brest (France) by sounding the bell in the traditional way. It is the first vessel booked under the new management and comes in the second week after the acquisition of the former Sobrena Yard in Brest by the Damen Shipyards Group.

The order was granted by the French offshore and subsea service provider Bourbon Offshore Surf, specialized in Subsea Umbilicals Risers Flow lines (SURF) services and concerns the docking of the Alcyon, one of Bourbon’s Anchor Handling Tug Supply vessels.

The docking consists of the 30-years survey, including all normal items, a complete external paint program, repairs of tank coatings, and major steel renewal in fore peak area.

Damen Ship repair Brest is a well-established repair yard with modern facilities. It has three graven dry docks and sufficient repair berths. The biggest dry dock measures 420 x 80 meters and is one of the largest in Europe, allowing the yard to accommodate almost any ship in the world.

The shipyard offers a broad range of services for any vessel type, including LNG tankers, oil tankers, semi-submersibles, shuttle tankers, FPSO’s, offshore construction vessels, jack-up rigs, ro-ro vessels and ferries. The highly skilled workforce is particularly well-known for its LNG tanker expertise.
