The shipyard has diversified from its traditional domain of ship repair and now offers its services to the growing oil, gas and energy sectors.

The number of significant and high-value repairs carried out during 2012 has increased several-fold over the previous years and the industry has widely accepted the shipyard’s capabilities at delivering high quality products on time and in a cost effective manner. In 2012 the yard repaired and refurbished 11 rigs and the numbers are expected to progressively increase into 2013 and beyond.
