Brødrene Dahl AS
The BD Marine division in BD works closely with many Norwegian ship builders and ship owners. It is the largest company in this field in Norway and supplies most of the shipyards in Norway with pipes, fittings, valves,
actuators and valve control systems. The products can be delivered in different type of material qualities, i.e. carbon steel, stainless steel or copper nickel.
If a ship is repaired or constructed in countries where sourcing correctly classified materials can be a challenge, BD Marine can assist with standards and material qualities for immediate deliveries. (BD Marine does only deliver materials from manufacturers approved by the major classification companies).
The head office of BD Marine is located in Ålesund, as a part of the maritime cluster on the West Coast of Norway. The company’s central warehouse is located in Oslo, and in Ålesund BD has a stock of goods especially dedicated for the maritime industry. In addition, the company has four warehouses located in Romania, two in Tulcea, one Constanta and one in Braila to take care of the local yards and other industrial customers.
In 2009 BD also opened a warehouse in Vung Tau in Vietnam for the Vietnamese market. BD also supplies their products to ship owners when repair jobs must be done, anywhere across the globe.
BD’s Industrial & Shipbuilding catalogue can be found on its website – www.dahl.no – and this catalouge has been described by users as “the bible in sourcing the correct materials for shipbuilding and repair.” Although today many believe that electronic access is the only solution, BD is also aware that many customers prefer the printed copy of the catalogue.
