Damen Schelde Marine Services has a long history in Sulzer engines. In 1918 "De Royal Schelde" was the first company to build Sulzer engines under license. As "De Royal Schelde" we have build many engines such as Sulzer RL, RD, RND, RND-M and RTA. \
Sulzer, New Sulzer Diesel, Wärtsilä, CSSC & WinGD
In 1985 the assembly from engines stopped and until the year 1990 "De Royal Schelde" Machinefactory produced spare parts for the engines. In November, Sulzer set up a separate company named New Sulzer Diesel Ltd.
In 1997 New Sulzer Diesel ltd. merged with Wärtsilä Diesel Oy. This company was named Wärtsilä NSD Corporation which became later Wärtsilä Corporation.
The year 2015 Wärtsilä Switzerland Ltd. merged with China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) and was renamed Winterthur Gas & Diesel Ltd. (WinGD). In 2016, Wärtsilä sold it's remaining shares of WinGD to CSSC making that CSSC fully owned WinGD.
De Royal Schelde and DAMEN Schelde Marine Services
In the year 2000 DAMEN Shipyards aqcuired "De Royal Schelde" and all it's companies within "De Royal Schelde". Also "Schelde Marine Services" was bought and renamed DAMEN Schelde Marine Services now.
Since 1990 when production in our facility in Vlissingen, the Netherlands, stopped Schelde Marine Services continued the relations with Original Engine Manufacturers and all other possible high-quality suppliers all over the world. We stock many spare parts for Sulzer engines we have build but also expanded our scope of supply to Wärtsilä RT-Flex engines as we have all technical knowledge available in-house.
