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.

High-class visit: On Thursday, February 15th 2018 GERMAN NAVAL YARDS KIEL (GNYK) welcomed Prime Minister of Schleswig-Holstein Daniel Günther.

In the course of an approximately two hours tour the Prime Minister gained an insight into the versatile work of the shipyard in Kiel. Accompanied by General Manager Holger Kahl and Sales Manager of the navy sector, Dr Jörg Brechtefeld Daniel Günther was able to obtain an impression of the diverse production processes of highly complex new ship constructions. Trainees of the shipyard introduced the most important production stages to the Prime Minister.
