  Ship Repair Department
The well-equipped Ship Repair Department has four repair docks, one of which can handle vessels of up to 400,000 DWT, and has an annual repair capacity of 5,400,000GT.

The department carries out a great variety of assignments, including ship repairs and conversions, and has earned a good reputation from customers for the speed and reliability of its work.

Our 400,000 DWT repair dock and the 300,000 DWT outfitting quay are of special value in carrying out modifications, alterations, hull extension work, and the periodical and intermediate inspection of large ships.

The fact that the Department has had a heavy workload, and has shown excellent business results in recent years, is indicative of the value customers place on the quality of its work.
