According to Tom Todd, both large and small yards in Germany are reaping the benefits of diversification and streamlined production, and have attracted some significant newbuild orders despite some still-unresolved failures along the way.
Tom Todd relates a story of mixed fortunes currently in German newbuilding with some yards busy and prospering while others struggle to find work and stay afloat. Proving a blessing is offshore work, specifically tough wind power transport and installation newbuildings and yards continue to switch production to join in the boom.
Specialist conversions, some of them unusual, have been among the highlights of recent activity at German repair yards, particularly the smaller facilities, writes Tom Todd.
The Elbe Pilot association in Cuxhaven, Germany has strengthened its fleet with the addition of the new 2,462gt pilot station vessel Elbe designed for rough coastal waters and tidal estuaries.
Welcome newbuilding orders, impressive completions and some positive corporate moves against a background of improving markets have revived spirits this autumn in German shipyards, writes Tom Todd.
The new pilot station vessel Elbe was recently christened in Cuxhaven, Germany, and has entered into service with the Elbe Pilot organisation.
