New certification for Damen Shipyards Antalya

12th August 2016 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Damen announced on 9 August that its Turkish shipyard, Damen Shipyards Antalya, has secured comprehensive ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certification. 

The certification confirms that production processes at the shipyard meet all requirements for quality, safety and the environment.

The shipyard has undergone rapid expansion since it opened in 2013. New production halls have been added to the facilities, and steel and aluminium vessel fabrication has been added to its core composite vessel construction business.

The new capabilities of the shipyard enabled the three sites to deliver 54 ships in 2015, with an increasing number of vessel types under production. These include Damen’s Stan Pilot 1505, Stan Pilot 1605, Stan Patrol 1605, Interceptor 1503, Interceptor 1102, Fast Crew Supplier 5009 and the Search and Rescue Vessel 1906. The yard is also equipped to build various examples from Damen’s public transport range.

Auke van der Zee, managing director, Damen Shipyards Antalya, said that the yard’s expansion continued this year with the inauguration of a fourth production hall. 

‘With this new building location, we have further expanded our capacity for steel and aluminium vessel construction. We can now build an even wider range of vessels, including larger ferries and fast yacht support vessels.

‘If you look at how much we have achieved in such a short time, I'm very curious to see what we will accomplish over the next three and a half years.’
