Our shipyard & Docks
With an overall shipyard area of 451,000 square metres and a 2,100-square-metre waterfront, Blohm+Voss offers many possibilities. Our shipyard includes three shipbuilding halls, one prefabrication hall, four mechanical and engineering workshops, one carpenter workshop, twelve warehouse and storage facilities, and a training and education centre – all equipped with cutting-edge technology to meet our customers’ needs.
A NETWORK OF EXTENSIVE COLLABORATION
At NVL Group, a well-oiled team of shipbuilding specialists, suppliers and partners work independently and yet hand in hand to deliver high-quality vessels tailored to customers’ precise needs. A current example of our network expertise and cooperation between the shipyards is the new build of the K130 corvettes (boats 6-10) for the German Navy. While the aftships are currently built at Peene-Werft in Wolgast, the foreships are manufactured in Bremen or Kiel. Both halves are towed to Hamburg, “married” together and outfitted by Blohm+Voss.
As a specialist for highly equipped naval vessels, Blohm+Voss takes over a leading role for many NVL Group projects. As each project is one of a kind, we focus on agile management and remain flexible at all times. Detailed planning and fine-tuned coordination take top priority in our naval vessels and projects. Our experienced workforce and dedicated teams make sure processes run smoothly, coordinating the different building phases, materials and technology down to the very last detail. The result is one single harmonised vessel that is delivered to you as fast and as efficiently as possible – while meeting high quality standards and all the necessary regulations and legislation.
INNOVATIVE THINKERS WITH A STRONG HERITAGE
Nearly 150 years of history in the building of naval ships has shaped the team culture at Blohm+Voss over generations. Our shipyard covers a large area and features multiple docks, yet our team is tight-knit with a special bond to the shipyard. Our project teams consist of multiple experts of various trades – from naval architects to mechanical and electrical engineers to interior outfitters and many more – who can handle the most complex projects. Even for spontaneous projects, creating a whole specialised infrastructure within the shipyard is no obstacle. We work in sync and in a cohesive synergy together – highly qualified, well harmonised, with a passion for developing and implementing innovative solutions of naval vessels for our customers.
