Brief description:

The occasion for this short chronicle was the centenary of Nordseewerke in 2003.

Nordseewerke GmbH in Emden currently employs 1.350 staff. Ships are built, overhauled, repaired or rebuilt in the shipyard and dock facilities on quays extending around 1.000 metres. One of the yard's special domains in merchant shipbuilding consists of high-value special ships such as e.g. containerships, suction dredgers, LPG and chemical tankers as well as icebreakers with innovative technology based on the Thyssen/Waas system. Another of its main fields of activity is naval shipbuilding.
