Fayard Reopens Giant Dock

Fayard is reopening the big drydock on Lindøværftet, giving them the power over and the exclusivity of ship repairs in the very same dock that, back in the day, laid the foundation for the world’s biggest container ships for Maersk. This makes Fayard a force to be reckoned with for the pacesetting shipyards in the whole Baltic region and shipyards across Europe

Fayard, formerly the Fredericia Værft, is about to sign a final agreement with Lindø Industripark concerning the lease of the big Dock 3 on the former Odense Staalskibsværft, Lindø. For decades, the dock has been the site of construction for the biggest ships of the A. P. Møller – Mærsk fleet, and by reopening the dock, Fayard becomes not only one of the pacesetting shipyards in the heavily trafficked Baltic region. The shipyard becomes a serious player on the European scene.

The leasing agreement is made in cooperation between Fayard and H. J. Hansen Genvindingsindustri, which has specialized in, among other things, the recycling and breaking down of the oil rigs in the Baltic Sea. At the same time, Fayard is also investing in getting an environmental approval for the dock, along with other practical measures to make the dock more user friendly.
