Managing Director's Message

Welcome to Nakilat Damen Shipyards Qatar (NDSQ), a company at the cutting edge of shipbuilding, shaping the marine industry both in Qatar and internationally.

NDSQ is a joint venture between Qatari gas transport company Nakilat and Dutch shipbuilder Damen Shipyards, two internationally renowned companies at the forefronts of their fields. These strong and reputable companies have made a long-term commitment to the development of the State of Qatar. When NDSQ opened for business in 2010, large-scale shipbuilding was added to Qatar's industrial economy.

Highest Standards

As of November 2014, NDSQ has delivered 22 vessels and has performed 14 refit/repair jobs on mega yachts, achieving quality of the highest standard. However, while the diversification of Qatar's economy and the production of high quality products are core values of NDSQ's operations, our number one priority is safety.

We value each and every one of our workers. They are crucial to our operations and their welfare has direct impact on our business. We invest in the highest levels of safety equipment and education for our workers, with the view that everyone should go home safe and well to their families.

Further Development

The development of our employees is another key priority at NDSQ. We train our people to take on leadership roles and invest in their skills to make NDSQ a stronger operation. NDSQ is also always on the look-out for good people to join our team.

By adhering to the most advanced standards of shipbuilding technology and safety, we intend to position NDSQ -and with it, Qatar - as one of the most dynamic and forward-thinking shipbuilders in the world.
