Optimum infrastructures

The infrastructure of our shipbuilding facilities enables a particularly efficient construction method. On more than 250,000 m² state-of-the-art shipbuilding halls, a covered dock and a further doch with a length of 426 m are located. It is the largest dry dock in the entire Baltic region.
We also have a powerful portal crane with a lifting capacity of 900 t at our disposal. This infrastructure enables shorter building periods - all of which brings clear advantages for our clients and customers.


GPC 90 – an ideal seagoing platform

The General Purpose Corvette 90 (GPC 90) is a compact naval surface vessel. It possesses hard-hitting capabilities for 4-dimensional marine combat scenarios. The optimised hull design of the GPC 90 guarantees ideal manoeuvrability and handling qualities at sea – even in the roughest weather conditions and sea states. Powerful defensive and offensive capabilities are particularly outstanding features of the GPC 90. In terms of its capabilities, the type is comparable with a light frigate.

We adapt the GPC 90 to meet your specific demands with respect to planned deployment scenarios and mission requirements. For example, with regard to sensoring technology and armament.
