Strong service network

Close collaboration with our partners

German Dry Docks has acquired shares in its long-term partner Rotterdam Ship Repair in September 2015. This will allow us to continue to expand our complete service network for harbour and voyage repairs which already covers the entire German-Dutch costline. Since October 2016, MWB Power has been represented with a subsidiary at Europe's largest deep water port. Hand in hand with Rotterdam Ship Repair, MWB Power Rotterdam covers the entire range of ship and engine repairs on site.

As of February 1, 2017 German Dry Docks AG (GDD), BREDO Dockgesellschaft mbH (BREDO) and Mützelfeldtwerft GmbH & Co. KG will form a shipyard alliance under the umbrella of the German Dry Docks Group. The shipyards will preserve their independence and continue to trade in the market with their names. The aim is to harmonise the business segments with a cross-site dock planning. Customers of all three companies will benefit from the common higher flexibility and dock capacity. The shipyard alliance is an important component in order to offer repairs in Germany at the same prices but with even more service.
