Shipyards operations and maintenance

When planning and designing a port or shipyard, it is important to understand how it will be operated and maintained.  Our Maritime team has extensive experience in these areas and can proactively assist you as required.
Shipyards operations and maintenance

Our services can be divided into two main areas:

Shipyard operations

First Marine International, our in-house shipyard technology experts, specialise in operational excellence: both in the design of new shipyards and improving the performance of existing ones. We help shipyards to be profitable from their initial construction and be competitive throughout their operational lives.

Maintenance of maritime structures

The maritime environment is particularly harsh on concrete and steel structures. We have undertaken many projects around the world concerning the repair and maintenance of existing port and shipyard facilities, including capacity upgrades.

Through First Marine International (FMI), a company of Royal HaskoningDHV, we are also able to provide specialist consultancy services to the marine industry. FMI delivers expert assistance and information to shipbuilders, ship repairers, and other marine-related organisations worldwide.
