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.

Combat support vessel „FRANKFURT AM MAIN” ready for operation again

Ready for operation again: On Monday, September 4th, 2017 the German Navy combat support vessel “FRANKFURT AM MAIN” (A 1412) type EGV 702 (so called “Berlin-Class“) left the dry dock of GERMAN NAVAL YARDS Kiel. Here, on the site of the sister shipyard in Kiel, NOBISKRUG’s repair team has been repairing a stern damage on the 174 m long Navy ship for approximately ten weeks. Beside the extensive steel works – approx. 40 t of steel had to be exchanged – NOBISKRUG executed further maintenance and pipe works which were also due. Again, the shipyard proved that projects can be successfully realized within the given time and budget.
