Thanks for the information. I remember seeing the drydocks from a vantage point near the railway station in the mid 70's. More recently have passed by Damen on cruise ship visits to Amsterdam

BP was a very regular customer of ADM, I remember many BP tankers there during a long period of time !, ADM amalgamated with NDSM which is still in operation today as Damen Shiprepair Amsterdam.
