German ferry company Wyker Dampfschiffs-Reederei has celebrated its 125th anniversary with the Inauguration of its newest double-ended ferry, ‘Uthlande’.
One of Germany’s oldest private shipyards, J.J.Sietas, has completed its first ro-pax newbuilding, the small, 75.1m, state-of-the-art, double-end ferry Uthlande, and with it entered a specialist sector still competitive for some European shipbuilders, writes Tom Todd.
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.
Just a few months after taking 'Uthlande' into service, German owner Wyker Dampfschiffs-Reederei (WDR) has taken advantage of an improved economic climate and interest rates to bring forward an order for a second double-ended ferry newbuilding, writes Tom Todd.
Hamburg shipyard J.J.Sietas, on its knees and near collapse just two years ago, has become the first German yard to design and build an offshore wind energy transport and installation jack-up vessel.
Struggling German shipyards delivered far fewer new ships in 2010 than they have for many years, conceding further market shares to Asia and themselves completing just 30 newbuildings of 783,500 gt, writes Tom Todd.
In December 2010 the J.J. Sietas Neuenfelde shipyard near Hamburg delivered the heavy lift ship ‘Svenja’ to Germany-based heavy lift company Schiffahrtskontor Altes Land (SAL), a joint venture with the Japanese 'K'-Line group.
Crane and deck gear maker Neuenfelder Maschinenfabrik (NMF) has a new management team, Ralf Ressel (CEO) and Goran Curic as COO.
Van Oord, the Dutch dredging, marine and offshore contractor, has engaged the Sietas shipyard in Hamburg for the final fitting-out and commissioning of its new flexible fallpipe vessel Stornes.
Times remain hard but German newbuilders are not giving up, writes Tom Todd. Specialist production changes underway almost everywhere to meet changing demand are being reflected in impressive newbuildings and in some unexpected new orders.
The management of J.J. Sietas KG Schiffswerft GmbH u Co and J.J. Sietas Verwaltungs GmbH have filed a petition for insolvency at the Municipal Court Hamburg on 17 November 2011, due to over-indebtedness.
Insolvent private German shipyard J.J.Sietas has announced that 250 of its remaining 700 employees will lose their jobs up to May as the facility cuts its cloth to match its order load, writes Tom Todd.
An order placed by Van Oord of the Netherlands for a wind power transport and installation vessel with the troubled German JJ Sietas shipyard of Hamburg has been renewed, according to receiver Berthold Brinkmann.
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.
The first of two new double-ended ferries from the troubled German Sietas shipyard goes into service in the Baltic this month while the yard, still in receivership, reported new investor interest.
The Sietas shipyard in Hamburg has made a start on the construction of the first sections and blocks of the offshore wind power jack-up vessel for Dutch marine engineering company Van Oord.
Receiver Berthold Brinkmann, acting for the troubled Hamburg-based JJ Sietas shipbuilding group, says that five concrete offers have been received for the three companies in the group.
The suction dredger ‘Eke Möbius’, built by Sietas shipyard, has been handed over to hydraulic engineering company, Josef Möbius Bau-GmbH, and was christened last week.
