Lisnave- more vessels less work

Feb 28 2014

Despite owners spending less money on repairs and competing in a global and highly competitive market, Portuguese shiprepair yard Lisnave handled a higher number of vessels last year.

A total of 107 vessels visited the repair yard in 2013, of which 103 were docked and four repaired afloat.

Although this represented a 6% increase in the number of vessels repaired, compared to the previous year (101 ships), the workload per vessel was less.

Vessels handled were from 60 different customers, originating from 23 countries worldwide. These included Singapore with 29 vessels, Greece with 20, UK with eight, Norway and Denmark with seven each and Germany with six.

Continuing to benefit from a high percentage of repeat business in 2013, AP Moller-Maersk (Singapore and Denmark) saw the largest number of vessels repaired at 14, followed by Teekay (UK, Norway and Singapore) with seven ships and AET with six.

Lisnave repaired a variety of ship types, the largest of which were tankers numbering 61 vessels, according to the company.
