EDR Antwerp Shipyard, formed in the late ’90 as Engine Deck Repair NV, started as a small workshop providing emergency repairs during cargo operations. Gradually its technical services extended by offering our clients extensive repairs, afloat repairs and conversions on lay-by berths and during navigation.
In 2006, Engine Deck Repair NV expanded into the field of spare parts distribution and technical supplies.
Adding services for inland vessel to the above success formula resulted, in the year 2011, in the creation of the biggest ship repair company in Belgium.
In 2015, EDR acquired ownership and management of the yard at quay 403 in the center of the Port of Antwerp. Since then, we have made rigorous investments in the drydocks, cranes, repair berths, and workshops.
