Over many decades the EMDEN DOCKYARD quays, halls and docks have seen a large number of naval warships and submarines that were built and repaired on the dockyard's premises.

Submarine building in Emden

For both, the German Navy as well as many foreign navies all over the world, such as Norway, Argentina, Israel and South Africa, particularly submarines were developed and built. The expertise in submarines reaches back to World War II when altogether 30 Type VIIc submarines were assembled here.

In the past 25 years 17 submarines were delivered and recently, two of what are probably the most modern submarines in the world, the class 212A submarines for the German Navy, were built here in Emden.
