The GERMAN NAVAL YARDS Kiel shipyard looks back with pride on over 185 years of experience and tradition in shipbuilding. Originating from the former surface shipbuilding of Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft (HDW), the Kiel shipyard is part of the international CMN NAVAL group and thus continues the long-standing shipbuilding tradition on the Kiel Fjord.
Paired with innovative, state-of-the-art shipbuilding, this long-term industrial presence in the naval defence sector is a solid foundation for the professional expertise and activities essential for opening up sustainable opportunities for expansion and growth.
GERMAN NAVAL YARDS has the know-how of more than 185 years shipbuilding tradition and a unique yard infrastructure. Specialised in the building of large and technically complex naval ships such as corvettes, frigates and OPVs our yard is an important employer in the region. With this we are significantly contributing to Germany's value creation. We are in close collaboration with German and European partners. We have been working as a reliable partner for the Federal Armed Forces regarding planning, building and maintenance of ships for decades.
The German Navy is in need of modern naval vessels in order to meet the growing requirements. GERMAN NAVAL YARDS has proved in the past that it is capable of delivering modern, technically high and complex Naval ships within a cost and time frame.
