Damen opens Romanian yard

On July 23, Damen Shipyards began operations at its recently acquired Mangalia shipyard in Romania.

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.

Damen purchased the yard, formerly known as Daewoo Mangalia Heavy Industries, from Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering.

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.
