Damen Shiprepair Brest is a well-established repair yard with modern facilities. It has three graving dry docks and a number of repair berths. The largest dry dock is, at 420 m x 80 m, 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, 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.
