Damen halts delivery of newbuilds to Russia

Investigators raid Damen headquarters amid bribery scandal 


Netherlands-based shipbuilder Damen has announced it decided to stop deliveries of new vessels to clients in Russia due to the ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

Damen said its decision will have significant impact on the company’s earnings.

Damen said it will affect working vessels already contracted or under construction, like tugs and fishing boats. It will also have an impact on dozens of Damen’s suppliers.  

“It was not a light decision,” the company said. 

Damen is also working to take care of the 200-plus employees of its Ukrainian division, located in the city of Nikolaev.
