Damen acquires Arno Dunkerque

December 20 - Netherlands-headquartered Damen Shipyards this week acquired French ship repair yard, Arno Dunkerque.

The yard will continue to provide ship repair and conversion services at France's third-largest port, Dunkerque. Equally, to ensure a smooth ownership transition of the shipyard into the Damen Group, all personnel and management will remain in place.

René Berkvens, ceo Damen Shipyards, says: "Arno brings added value to Damen as it is a modern shipyard with about 160 highly skilled workers. The presence of a significant industrial environment, consisting of nearby specialist subcontractors, is another reason."

Christine Cabau Woehrel, ceo of Dunkirk Port Authority noted that the deal "will reinforce the position of ship repair activities in the Port of Dunkirk and will give it international coverage."
