Damen Shiprepair Brest (France) awarded a second firm booking for the drydocking, maintenance & repair of the LNG carrier ‘Lalla Fatma N’Soumer’.

The Hyproc Shipping owned and managed 80,920 dwt vessel will arrive end-September, straight after the shipyard has completed the Bonny Gas Transport ‘LNG SOKOTO’ contract.

Jos Goris, Managing Director of Damen Shiprepair Brest (DSB), says: “We are very pleased with this order, which followed very quickly after the LNG SOKOTO because it ensures the uninterrupted continuation of our LNG activities. The yard’s workforce has shown their LNG skills and experience in executing the high quality, safe and secure works on this contract. 

“With execution of the general maintenance and drydocking of the LNG Lalla Fatma N’Soumer we will demonstrate our continuous commitment to the owners and fleet managers of the LNG community.”


DSB (formerly known as Sobrena) is a well-established repair yard with modern facilities. The yard employs over 200 staff and has three graven dry docks and several repair berths. The largest dry dock measures 420 x 80 metres and is one of the biggest 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, FPSOs, offshore construction vessels, jack-up rigs, RoRo vessels and ferries. The highly skilled workforce is particularly well known for its LNG tanker expertise.
