The North Sea area is graced with plenty of repair facilities for all different kind and sizes of vessels. However this area is relatively high priced. Consequently 'haircut and shaving' jobs with big ships which are trading intercontinentally are mostly awarded to shipyards in low cost areas. It is also a matter of ship sizes, especially with container ships. Ships of more than 15,000 TEU hardly find a docking facility in this area any more. For vessels over 30.000 dwt Lisnave in Portugal is the leading shipyard in terms of vessels drydocked.
