Retrofit solutions

Keep your vessel sailing

Retrofits at any stage

Whether it is ballast water treatment, hybridisation, or any other retrofit, Albwardy Damen can support you at any stage. If you need engineering, fabrication of piping and structures, commissioning support or installation of equipment, we offer solutions, either in a ship, yard, afloat or during a voyage.

Albwardy Damen has a multi-disciplinary Engineering and Production support team comprising qualified and experienced naval architects, engineers and draughtsmen, capable of providing end-to-end engineering services whether you have a newbuilding, conversion or shiprepair project.

3D Scanning

We have had our own 3D scanning team since 2018. Our operators and engineers are able to take on complex challenges related to surveying and the design of marine projects anywhere in the world. Used for newbuilding, conversion and repair projects, this technology is a smart choice for saving time and resources, while maintaining the highest quality standards.

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.
