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.
Naval vessels out of Emden
Apart from the submarine business, the shipyard was involved in the full construction and/or final outfitting of a number of warships and auxiliary ships for the German Navy such as the Frigate Classes 122, 123, 124, Corvette Class 130 and the 174 meter Class 702 Supply Vessel Bonn.
