The best possible maintenance work

Maintain your ship

Annual, intermediate and special surveys

Over a thousand ships serviced annually

Our network of shipyards offer world-class maintenance services for all types of vessels, from the shortest stopovers to extended programmes including special and intermediate class surveys. For the most complex mechanical items such as engines, thrusters, propulsion systems and cranes to navigation, automation, IT and safety systems, we work together with our industry partners to provide a complete one-stop service that will ensure that your vessels leave our yards at peak efficiency and class-compliant. Servicing, overhauls, upgrades, repairs or mobilisations for the next project, we handle them all. When it comes to keeping the exterior in top shape and looking good, we deliver steelworks to the highest standards plus cleaning, painting and polishing.

Whatever the task, we have the facilities and experience to ensure that downtime is kept to the absolute minimum. We also offer a range of vessel maintenance solutions for regular customers that include predictive, preventative, and condition-based packages which all but eliminate the risk of equipment failure. Whether it’s a containership, an LNG carrier, a naval frigate, a fishing boat or a fully-rigged ship, we are ready to meet your needs.
