Wherever in the world your ship needs high-quality repair, we can be at your side. Naturally, we take local conditions into account in this. In consultation with you we can carry out any imaginable ship repairs above and below the waterline. We make every effort to carry out all necessary repairs while the ship is in harbour. Should this not be possible, our specialized riding squad team will travel on board until the work has been successfully completed.

  • Steel work: including damage caused by unloading and loading operations to container cell guides, gangways, hatch covers, railings, loading cranes and damage (holes) caused by grabs in the tank roof during bulk cargo operations.
  • Metalwork: including repairs to deck machinery, anchors/mooring winches, anchor chains, loading gear and gangways
  • Work on bow thrusters, shaft seals and propellers (in cooperation with the OEM concerned)
  • Replacement and repair of anchors and chains (high mobility due to the dockyard’s own launches and pontoons)
  • Change of ship names and logos, application of IMO number
  • Repairs below the waterline in cooperation with professional and certified internationally operating industrial diving companies.
