At Royal HaskoningDHV, we have more than 70 years’ experience of planning, engineering and procuring successful shipyards across the globe and offer a unique and comprehensive service to our clients that has made us world leaders in the maritime sector.
We are well aware of the challenges Covid-19 poses for the shipyard industry. During May 2020 we developed an at-a-glance checklist to assist shipyards and interested parties identify some of the principal areas for attention to maintain business continuity through and beyond the Covid-19 crisis.
Feel free to download the complete version and use this list to check whether industry-specific issues have been considered, discussed and mitigated as necessary within your business.

After safety, efficiency and being fit-for-purpose, the aim of any shipyard around the world is profitability. Being able to minimise costs, maximise revenues and explore new markets requires innovation, strategic planning and the ability to make those plans a reality.
Our shipyard technology group, First Marine International (FMI), are experts in naval architecture-based shipyard production and they work alongside our economic consultancy group Ocean Shipping Consultants (OSC) who provide comprehensive and expert global shipping trade forecasts. We build the business model: our multi-disciplinary teams analyse the market, optimise revenues and facility costs involved preparing the business plan before assisting our clients turning the concept into reality. As the shipyard facilities are constructed and developed, Royal HaskoningDHV’s expert teams are there to advise and reassure the client throughout the shipyard’s life cycle.
In addition to the development of modern dock and shipyard facilities, we are also experts in giving old facilities such as admiralty docks in naval bases a new lease of life and successfully modernising them for new purposes. This has included working with clients to design and deliver dock infrastructure such as: hauling-in winching systems, dock dewatering and flooding systems, dock arms, dock blocks, fendering, crane beams, rails and dock services.
