At Nordseewerke we beleive that technology is a key driver for our success. We invest in R&D and are currently develping a new LNG tank technology to build rectangular, multi size and shaped LNG tanks for a highly efficient use of space on board of ships. This goes hand in hand with the trend for LNG based power on board of ships.
Infrastructure The infrastructure comprises of an area of 551.000 m², which is equal to about 77 football fields – ample space for really large projects. About 75.000 m² are under roof. Our large manufacturing hall no. 119 of 100m length has a movable roof. Segments of 60m can be assembled. The gantry crane is capable of lifting 450t from or for the hall. The construction of 12 tripods for offshore windpower at the same time is testimony for the capacity of Nordseewerke.
