Fincantieri has been providing services to the Shiprepair and Conversion sector since its launching in 1959. Then, utilising the services of dedicated Companies which were initiated in 1992, Fincantieri established itself as one of the largest direct providers of drydocks and shiprepair services in the Mediterranean. This activity has developed into a specialised Marine Services business unit, which is technically and commercially able to respond quickly and efficiently to client needs and which provides all the required support for ship repair, conversion and other specialised projects.
Dedicated resources for this activity include the large shipyard in Palermo which comprises several workshops, deep quays and drydocks (400,000DWT Max), two docks (250,000DWT Max) at Trieste ATSM, and a dock (40,000DWT Max) at the Muggiano yard in La Spezia.
Fincantieri offers ship owners a wealth of experience encompassing a full range of interventions on all types of vessels which, when required, can be supplemented by the capabilities and resources of the shipbuilding and other divisions within the company.
The shiprepair and conversion business unit also includes steel fabrication for marine, offshore and onshore applications and is evaluating possibilities to diversify into activities which offer synergy with its capabilities, resources and central Mediterranean location.
Fincantieri works as prime contractor in the field of ordinary and extraordinary maintenance, conversion/upgrading providing technical support and assistance in drawing up and managing maintenance programmes, in accurately estimating the length of time the ship will be out of service and in addition, coordinating and carrying out purchasing activities up till execution of the work in the shipyard.
