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.
The Port of Hamburg is a crucial and pivotal port for the shipping industry and commercial vessels worldwide, with thousands of ships passing through the port and the river Elbe each year.
Blohm+Voss and Norderwerft offer a range of docks and dedicated facilities for repairs, refitting, conversion, maintenance and servicing of all types of commercial and offshore vessels, including bulk carriers, container ships, refrigerated ships and RoRos.
