For over 65 years we have set the greatest store by the quality of our products and services and we guarantee our customers the services of a highly motivated team in a reliable and flexible business environment. Thanks to our ethos of commitment and the shipbuilding skills and expertise of our qualified staff, we are optimally positioned to handle a wide range of challenges in the areas of extensive repairs, servicing and maintenance work and refits of yachts, working, passenger and naval vessels, and able to develop and efficiently implement solutions tailored to specific customer requirements.
From the outset, our top priorities have been the safety of our employees, service providers and business partners, and treating the environment responsibly. We do not see our adherence to the most exacting of environmental protection and healthcare standards as simply the fulfilment of requirements – it is, in fact, an inherent part of our company philosophy, to which we will continue to remain true in the future. This is why we are systematically working to optimise the quality and efficiency of our products and services and specifically introducing all the latest environmental protection and healthcare standards to the Neue Jadewerft shipyard.
The journey between the North Sea shipping routes and the Neue Jadewerft shipyard is one of the shortest around.
As a state-of-the-art compact shipyard, the Neue Jadewerft yard is specifically designed to handle the repair, refitting, servicing and maintenance of yachts, auxiliary ships and naval vessels up to 150 metres in length. With its floating dock, a slipway and shipbuilding and production halls on an area of 40,000 square metres, the shipyard boasts highly efficient production capacities. The Neue Jadewerft shipyard is located in the non-tidal port of Wilhelmshaven and is accessible via the world’s second-largest lock, with two lock chambers each 390 metres in length, 60 metres wide and 14 metres deep.
The 150-metre floating dock, which is classified and regularly checked by Germanischer Lloyd, is continuously modernised and features a sonar system, hydraulic bilge blocks and hydraulic lateral walls to guarantee the vessels’ safety when docked.
In all, the Neue Jadewerft shipyard has four berths with a total length of 440 metres and draught of at least 8.50 metres within the port. An additional 315-metre berth with a draught of at least eleven metres is located right by the shipyard. The shipbuilding hall, which is perfectly aligned with the slipway, allows repairs to be carried out on yachts, auxiliary ships and naval vessels of up to 80 metres in length regardless of the weather. Both the shipbuilding hall and the production hall, which was thoroughly overhauled in 2013 to handle the processing of aluminium and stainless steel components, can be heated. The Neue Jadewerft shipyard’s modern infrastructure is designed with maximum efficiency in mind and is perfectly complemented by the repair shops arranged around the shipbuilding hall.more
