Excerpt from our portfolio

Damage repairs of all kinds

No limits
Damages to the ship hull, propulsion system or other systems unfortunately always occur unexpectedly. Our core task is to repair everything quickly. From tugs to frigates, from small fishing trawlers to Panmax class ships, from light damage to the outer shell to serious accidents, from rebuilding your entire control house and the deck reinforcement to renovating your interior.

Rotterdam Ship Repair is your partner who has the necessary competences for all aspects of such situations. In particular, if special procedures for the repair have to be worked out in cooperation with the manufacturers, suppliers or subcontractors, or if temporary repairs are selected for a quick continuation of the journey.

Our mobile units are always available to take care of your ship: in the harbor – for example, during cargo handling – or on the high seas. From our large network of partners, the required qualifications and the necessary workforce are always at our disposal. As a result, Rotterdam Ship Repair is also able to repair major damage after collisions, water ingress and fires in no time. Thanks to its long-standing, technically advanced work, Rotterdam Ship Repair enjoys a high level of trust among insurers and classification societies.

Our specialists are masters of their field and have plenty of experience and know-how – as well as the best marks in regular certifications by authorities and classification societies.

The variety of connections between different steels corresponds to the number of welding processes we perform.

    • Ship structure
    • Superstructure
  • De-/Mobilisation cargo securing
