DAMEN SHIPYARDS MANGALIA

THINKING BIG AT DAMEN SHIPYARDS MANGALIA

Covering a vast 100-hectare site on Romania’s south-eastern coast, Damen Shipyards Mangalia (DSMa) is by far the largest yard in the Damen Shipyards Group. It is also the largest yard on the Black Sea and in the east Mediterranean, its facilities including three graving drydocks ranging from 302 by 48 metres to 360 by 60 metres, and 1550 metres of quayside.

“We are making our business more sustainable by investing and expanding into new activities,” says Mr Groninger. “Tourism and our shipyard are the two main economic drivers in Mangalia, so it’s important we succeed and thrive long term. We employ 1850 people, we want to recruit a further 500 to 1000 in the next year, and we could end up with between 3000 and 5000 employees. In a town of 40000, we’re very much at the heart of the community.”
