 Shipyards in Turkey and Portugal have struck deals for major ship repair projects during Posidonia Exhibition at the Athens Metropolitan Expo in Greece.

 
Portugal’s Lisnave and Turkey’s Gemak, have also inked repair deals with fleet owners.
 
Nedime Ozoglu, Repair Division Marketing & Estimating, Besiktas Shipyard said that her company has concluded three major deals during the first two days of Posidonia. 
 
Of those, two are repair projects for a tanker and a bulk carrier and the third is a rather significant conversion project for a ROPAX type vessel belonging to an Italian owner, she said.
 
Greek shipowners constitute 80% of our portfolio because of the proximity mainly and because Turkey’s shipbuilding industry has significantly improved its talent pool and expertise recently, Nedime added.
