GERMAN NAVAL YARDS Kiel specialises in the design and construction of highly-integrated naval vessels. These include frigates, corvettes and offshore patrol vessels. Our shipyards in Kiel are the direct successor to the surface vessel shipbuilding sector of HDW (Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft GmbH). The historic traditions of naval shipbuilding on the Kiel Fjord live on at our shipyards.

Vessels of all frigate classes currently used by the German Navy have been built from this shipyard.

On a flying visit: On Tuesday, 11th of April 2017, NOBISKRUG’s repair team welcomed the Frigate “HESSEN” (F 221), which was towed directly into dock 8a, on the premises of its sister shipyard GERMAN NAVAL YARDS Kiel. The Naval Vessel type F 123 was commissioned in 2006 and is part of the so called “Sachsen class”.
