Refit, Upgrading & Modification

Refit & Upgrading
At EMDEN DOCKYARD we are particularly specialised in solving all manner of propulsion issues. Repairing or replacing shafts, bearings and propellers is a daily job for our teams. Ships are usually very valuable assets which need special care to keep them functional under all circumstances. This is particularly due to the harsh environment ships are subjected – corrosion and wear are always present. It is just there where EMDEN DOCKYARD’s scope of services begins. Be it a short dry docking visit for a simple scrub and new anti-fouling, an extensive refit of a naval ship, an upgrade of a research ship, a cruise ship or a superyacht, EMDEN DOCKYARD belongs to the finest addresses for providing any kind of services. Our Branches: Naval, Special & Offshore, Commercial and Yacht & Cruise
Non-destructive testing (NDT)
Another service we offer lies in the area of non-destructive testing (NDT). We have got approval by a number of Classifications Societies to carry out ultrasonic wall thickness measurements. Further, our testers are certified according to DIN EN ISO 9712 for the test methods VT, UT, MT, PT and LT (up to step 3). Finally, we have certified specialists and the equipment to carry out gas-free measurements in tanks and bunkers.
Class renewal and related works
When it comes to periodical special surveys demanded by the classification societies the duration of dry docking is of extreme importance, since the off-hire period should be as short as possible. We at EMDEN DOCKYARD are always aware of this demand. Therefore, we have adjusted our processes accordingly, including working on weekends.
Assessing the technical condition of a vessel, the scope of work needed for a refit or the extent of damages that need to be repaired after an incident gives essential information to owners in their decision making process. Our technical team can carry out surveys at our yard or on location to facilitate this process.
