Theodor Buschmann

Modern dockyard with a tug-building tradition

Today, the THEODOR BUSCHMANN dockyard is particularly successful in special steel construction, pontoon building and ship repairs. In addition to repairs in our own facilities, we specialise in worldwide repairs both underway and in harbour as well as the maintenance of onshore and offshore facilities. Our portfolio also includes the construction and conversion of maritime engineering equipment such as dredgers, pile drivers and jack-up platforms.

Started in 1882, the company initially built tugs and other vessels. Our competence in this area is unbroken. Since 2016 we have been producing new, innovative types of tugs at the THEODOR BUSCHMANN dockyard with the carousel tugs. But also the special welding of aluminium or stainless steel constructions belongs to the dockyard’s repertoire.
