Damen Antalya Shipyard Fire

A fire developed at a Damen Yachting Shipyard hall located at the Antalya Free Zone, Turkey on Monday May 15, 2023.  The fire developed on one of the construction halls with local fire fighters responding to the call, and evacuation protocol going into operation.  No one was injured in the fire, with the hall also being void of any projects, even though this is reported to have sustained a huge amount of damage.  Damen Antalya is believed to have three support super yachts in build at this moment in Antalya.
Damen yachting shipyard Antalya is one of ten ship building facilities of the Dutch company founded in 1927 on the River Merwede.  The Antalya facility was bought in 2013, previously a site of Vitters and opening up as Damen Shipyards Antalya in 2015.  Damen Antalya is specialized in building supply vessels, and support super yachts from 35 to eighty meters.
