No two orders are ever the same – that’s one of the fascinating aspects of shipyard work. Nevertheless, sometimes the differences are so enormous that we have to be able to completely rethink the situation and rely on our exceptional flexibility – this is a proven speciality of the repair teams at the company’s two yards in Kiel-Friedrichsort and Rendsburg.
From private yachts to navy corvettes
The corvette ‘ERFURT’ arrived in the fully conditioned, covered dock at the Rendsburg shipyards for a scheduled refit on 10.4.2014. Only a short while before, the team had been working on an extensive refit on two private yachts. Time to rethink the situation. From the delicate touch essential for fitting out refined and elegant luxury yachts for the coming season on the Côte d’Azur, the team switched smoothly to heavy mechanical and marine engineering mode to tackle the refit of a K130 class corvette and repair some minor damage to its hull. No problem at all for the seasoned team: The shakedown cruise to Warnemünde began on 4.9.2014. After adding a few final touches at the naval base, the ‘ERFURT’ has been back in service since 21.1.2015.
