Conversions & Retrofits
Large and small conversion jobs in the Middle East
We have a great deal of experience with large and small conversion jobs. The open sea access and the spacious and efficient layout of the Albwardy Damen facility is particularly well-suited to mobilisation and demobilisation of equipment and for carrying out complex conversions.
Our in-house engineers have the experience to carry out the basic and production designs necessary for conversions. Recent experience includes the conversion of cable laying & well stimulation vessels, tankers and yacht support vessels.
We undertake complex modifications and conversions, and even have lay-by berths available up to VLCC size for clients looking for a cost-effective alternative to a drydock. Having engineering, as well as a CNC pipeshop in-house allows us to carry out large-scale retrofits, such as ballast water management systems, quickly and efficiently. We can execute everything from complete turnkey projects to the installation of equipment provided by the client.
